After interviewing several highly qualified candidates and a difficult deliberation, the hiring committee chose three 2018 Graduate Sustainability Fellows. Our fellows this year will be:
- Lucy Pierce, 2nd year MES student, Carbon Offsets Fellow. Lucy will research on-going carbon offset projects and markets, and assist with campus engagement and discussion of what offsets the College should and should not pursue.
- Jamie Milletary, 2nd year MPA student, Sustainability Outreach Fellow. Jamie will be developing durable educational outreach content and structures for on-line and in-class learning. She will also be organizing a sustainable speaker series.
- Eden Thorkildsen, 2nd year MES student, Center for Sustainable Infrastructure Fellow. Eden will help produce a web-based map of Washington’s 21st Century infrastructure.
The Office of Sustainability and the Center for Sustainable Infrastructure are excited to welcome the new fellows! We would also like to thank everyone who applied and interviewed for the positions. We appreciate your efforts and were very happy to see such a large pool of highly qualified candidates for the three positions.
