Ruth Penniston Brings Her Science Experience to Sustainability Management

Over at the State of the Planet blog from Columbia University’s Earth Institute, Alyssa Rome interviews M.S. in Sustainability Management program student Ruth Penniston. Here’s Penniston talking about what drew her to the graduate program:

"I had the good fortune as an undergraduate to work under Michael Evans in an amazing paleoclimate tree ring lab at the University of Arizona. It was a crazy experience, because I was 18 and was working with world-class climate scientists. What I realized when I left the lab however, was that the amazing work that we were doing was being completely ignored by the broader world. I wanted to bridge the gap between scientists and everyone else. The MS in Sustainability Management seemed like that best way to do that."
