Summary: PhD Student, UCLA Department of Geography
Employment: Associate, Recruiting & Human Resources : Tower Research Capital LLC
The vivid histories and bleak landscapes of the poles have long fascinated me. At Cambridge, I will pursue an M.Phil in Polar Studies, comparing the development prospects for the Northern Sea Route and the Northwest Passage. By studying the Arctic, I unite my interests in geopolitics, resource management, and the Nordic countries. In college, I learned Swedish at Lund University and interned at the U.S. Embassy in Oslo, Norway. To deepen my knowledge of the circumpolar north, I started the Foreign Policy Association's Arctic Blog. I have also written articles and designed maps illustrating Arctic issues with a special emphasis on northern Canada. During my senior year in college, I analyzed Arctic sea ice data and projections to study how melting ice would affect polar settlements and ports in the 21st century. After my time at Cambridge, I hope to undertake a PhD in Geography, studying the broader implications of climate change on governance, society, and infrastructure.
