B.A. in Sociology and Environmental Science from CMU
PhD. Candidate in SociologyThis summer I plan on doing an internship for the Hummingbird Monitoring Network in Southeastern Arizona as part of my Master’s work. I will be creating surveys and working with local, primarily impoverished farmers on the use of hummingbirds as pollinators. My hope is that my degree will enable me to work with farmers and other entities involved in agriculture in order to promote understanding and sustainability of the natural environment, as well as improving the livelihoods of agricultural workers.
I’m excited by how open the Sociology department and the EFFS specialization are to my ideas about how I want to complete my degree. There is a lot of freedom to choose classes and research that are interesting to me.
