Environmental Sciences Major

I want to use my love of systems thinking, problem solving, and design to build a more livable and prosperous environment for my communities and people. I work within NU and the Evanston community to increase food access and divert food waste through mutual aid. To me, environmental science means building understanding of the near infinite layers of complexity that arise from human's interactions with our environment and using this understanding to build more equitable and resilient systems.
