Welcome to Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies

Namaste!

My name is Bipul Mayank and I am a first-year Master of Environmental Management (MEM) student from India. I am specializing in Business and Environment along with Environmental Policy Analysis.

When China met East Africa at F&ES:  Learning a Global Perspective on Research

During the Alumni TGIF (“Thank Goodness I’m a Forester” event at F&ES) last October, I shared with Gao, a Ph.D. candidate from China, my interest in learning about the environmental footprint of Chinese investments overseas. Despite my passion, I had little experience in the topic at the time and had no idea where to start looking for resources. Gao immediately introduced me to Dr. Helen Gichohi, the McCluskey Fellow at F&ES, at the Alumni Event.

I expressed my interest to Helen and made quick connections with her along with two other classmates, American and Ugandan students who shared a similar passion for the subject. As our interest overlapped with…

Connecting F&ES to Mexican prospective students

This year, I spent quite a different Thanksgiving break. Instead of enjoying a delicious dinner with my dear F&ES friends in New Haven, I was in Guadalajara (my hometown) enjoying Mexican dishes and tequila with my family and closest friends. I traveled home and visited my alma mater, ITESO University (Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Occidente), where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering in 2011. Many memories came to mind as I was walking through ITESO’s student halls and its astonishing gardens.
