“When I started at Rutgers, I got involved in research on campus, and sought out opportunities to do work related to environmental conservation, from studying the impacts of wildfires on orangutans to working  on phytoplankton health and abundance in the rapidly changing Antarctic ocean. At the same time, I was involved with student organizations fighting to make Rutgers and the surrounding community more sustainable. Doing research on issues related to climate change and conservation at an institution that refused to take any action on its own campus was frustrating and disappointing. I am excited to see Rutgers finally take the steps to listen to the science that its own faculty and students have been working on for so long!”
