I recently sat down with alum Megan McVey regarding her work on Climate Change Communications. I hope you find it as interesting as I did!
Emily: Megan! I’m so happy you agreed to sit down and chat with me for this blog!
Megan: This is exciting! I’ve got lots to say about FES and how awesome it is!
Emily: Well I’m sure our readers out there will love to hear it! Let’s get right down to it. The beginning: where were you before FES?
Megan: I was all over the place – laboratories, developing countries, the media industry, and on Capitol Hill. It was my practical experiences working as a field tech alongside conservation researchers and at non-profit organizations that provided the strongest impetus…
Check out this fun article on the newest Kroon Cup winner, Rachel Mak. She is an incredible force here on campus, championing sustainability!
Wow – you’re taking the next step! Your application was accepted, you checked out the campus on Accepted Students Day, now you’re busy online finding housing with fellow FES’ers. I hope that you have time this summer to relax, because once MODs begin, you’ll begin a whirlwind of activities, research, classwork, and adventure.

For me, the summer before I joined F&ES was crammed with work. As you likely know, I’m a joint student with Pace Law School.

The internship was incredible. I helped to write consent decrees for…
Greetings and salutations ones again, blog world! I’m back with, you guessed it, another recent FES alum doing something totally awesome. This time, I’ve got Margo Mosher, who works for a neat little sustainability think tank in NYC. During her time at FES, she spent a lot of time developing her vision for a perfect job and now she’s got it. Dreams do come true!
We sent our students on a mission over spring break to capture some beautiful photos and representing F&ES with their gear. Check out the amazing submissions we received!
Our winner was Nicholas Goldstein, who captured this stunning picture of fellow classmate Kelly Stoner at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
I recently caught up with Kavita Sharma (MEM ’12) to chat with her about her work with the UN. So many of you all are interested in working abroad after school, and Kavita is now in Geneva—and also doing international policy work, which so many of you are interested in—so I thought her advice and perspective would be helpful.
Our dean, Sir Peter Crane and FES alum, Frances Beinecke speak about Yale College’s efforts to become more sustainable under President Richard C. Levi’s leadership. Thought you all might enjoy!
A few weeks back, Yale F&ES hosted a team from Google to discuss opportunities for partnerships in advancing geo-technology. The event allowed attendees to work with Google Maps Engine and Google Earth Engine, and to get a first-hand view of the current state and future of Google’s leadership in spatial data analysis. An outstanding Master of Environmental Science student, Beth Tellman, shares her experience with this event, and how it relates to her own research.
