Cohort Level: Cohort - IV

Career Goal: Once I graduate from my current degree program, I plan to work in the policy/public administration field to help people in my local community/state. I then plan to broaden my experience by working internationally (hopefully in the United Nations) to help other countries abroad. Once I have enough experience to know what I would want to further study, I would like to start my master's degree-- and a PhD, hopefully-- to further my studies and become an adjunct professor.

Expected Graduation Date: May 20, 2022

Degree: B.A International Studies

Research Title: Analyzing the Impacts of Energy Use Based on Relative Humidity and Temperature Changes Data

Research Synopsis: By analyzing the daily changes in temperature and relative humidity collected through uHMT data, our project aims to focus on the impacts of energy use in regions where there was a change temperature and/or relative humidity. We then plan to find ways in which this data can be accessed to the public, and find solutions to the communities that are currently being affected by a higher energy burden and increase in temperatures and relative humidity.
