By Josh Galperin, Associate Director

 

The Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy congratulates the 2012 Switzer Fellows, two of whom are associated with the Center: Angel Hsu and Stephanie Safdi.

The Switzer Environmental Fellowship is a program of the Robert and Patricia Switzer foundation. According to the Foundation the Fellowship “recognizes the achievements of environmental leaders and their potential to drive positive change.” In total the Foundation awarded 20 fellowships this year, meaning that students associated the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy account for 20 percent of the entire Switzer Fellow population.

Angel Hsu is a doctoral candidate at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies as well as the Program Manager of the Environmental Performance Measurement program at the Center. The Fellowship recognizes Angel’s efforts to create environmental solutions through objective environmental performance measurement and the use of quantitative data and scientific approaches to guide environmental policymaking.

Stephanie Safdi is a joint student between Yale Law School and the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. She is the founder of the New Directions in Environmental Law conference hosted at Yale Law School each year and sponsored by the Yale Environmental Law Association and the Center for Environmental Law and Policy. Stephanie earned the 2012 Fellowship for her work to advance environmental justice, connecting environmental, health, and human rights law both domestically and internationally.

Leah ButlerJennifer Gaddis and Molly Greene, all graduate students at the Forestry School, and Reed Schuler from Yale Law School were also awarded Switzer Fellowships this year.
