EAF members are off for a fun and exciting summer. Learn more about it here!
This summer, I will be spending about 6 weeks in an environmental planning internship with a small non-profit in the Detroit area, where I grew up. For most of July and part of August I will be in China teaching at two Model United Nations programs.
This summer, I will be traveling back to my hometown of Ossining, NY. I am planning to have a relaxing summer before college becomes busier and more difficult in the fall. I will be working at a Swim and Tennis Club, where I will work as “Desk Girl,” checking in members and making necessary phone calls. I can’t wait to spend time with my family and friends, and I am looking forward to rejoining the EAF team in the fall!
I will spend the first two months of my summer on campus doing research on energy policy at the Harris School of Public Policy. I will also participate in research at the Booth School of Business and with the Astrophysics Department, and hope to spend my free time sailing. I will then travel to China for the remainder of my summer.
This summer I will be traveling to Bangkok, Thailand to work at a tech start-up. With a team of interns, I will conduct market research and help promote new products to various demographics within the city and country. I will be working there for nearly the entire summer and am very much looking forward to immersing myself in a new culture and taking on a huge adventure.
This summer I’m heading home to New Hampshire, where I’m going to be helping with a citizen science study by hiking a mountain very early in the morning and counting high elevation songbirds by identifying their songs.
This summer I will be interning at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. My research looks at the possibility of using grazing cattle as a means to conserve coastal grasslands. At the end of September I will head to Australia for a fall internship studying the acoustics of splendid fairy-wrens.
This summer I will be working at Kabouter, an alternative investments fund here in Chicago.
This summer, and for the foreseeable future, I am going to working for a public opinion research firm called EMC research as a Research Analyst. Come mid-June I will be moving to Oakland, CA. As an analyst with EMC research, I am going to be designing questionnaires and analyzing results for non-profit, governmental and political clients.
This summer I am going to be interning in Istanbul with the Hisar Anatolian Support Society, an economic development nonprofit. HADD works to empower young Turkish women who were forced to immigrate from rural villages, providing them with professional and vocational skills.
This summer I will be working at Deutsche Bank in New York on their foreign exchange structuring and rates trading desks. After that I may go back home to Beijing, and will likely start my BA research.
This summer, I will be working in Midtown Manhattan on the Equities Cash Trading desk at JP Morgan in their Sales and Trading division. I hope to explore the city on the weekends and watch as many Broadway musicals as possible. I am especially looking forward to eating from the Halal Guys food cart and attending a New York Yankees baseball game.
This summer I will be presenting our research at the Green Sports Alliance Summit at McCormick Place continuing to work with our partners to further green sports initiatives in Chicago. I will also be working with our NSF team on research to evaluate the impacts of ecosystem change on livelihoods in the Mekong-Tonle Sap region of Cambodia. And most importantly, I’ll be taking my 1.5 year old daughter to her first summer camp!
