Abstract:

Alumna Ale Hakala ’03 came to Princeton with an interest in environmental policy, though she hadn’t given much thought to more technical careers in the environmental field. Her courses, including a freshman seminar in geosciences and a policy-themed class with Greg van der Vink *83, helped to sharpen her focus, and a summer internship with civil and environmental engineering professor Catherine Peters gave her a closer view of research. But the course that would define her career path was geochemistry, taught by professor Satish Myneni.
