MIIS Liaison Since

Shaun hails from the magical lands of New Jersey, but is now happily studying International Environmental Policy, concentrating in Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies. He studied Biological Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech where he focused on coastal habitats, and wants to work in a multidisciplinary environment bridging the gap between natural and social sciences. Fresh off the plane from 2 years in Panama working as a Water and Sanitation Engineer with the Peace Corps, Shaun hit the ground running attending conferences at the International Maritime Organization in London, Fish2.0 at Stanford, local climate adaptation workshops and many more. If you have trouble finding him, throw on a wetsuit and head to his “office,” no appointment necessary.
