Basil Williams

JD/MPP Candidate, Harvard Law School and Kennedy School of GovernmentBasil

"In my experiences in private and public sector work environments since graduation, I have used the skills I learned in the ESPP program - a deeper scientific understanding of the natural world, the ability to ask challenging questions about our relationship with it, and the analytical tools to approach policy issues from economic and ethical perspectives.  As I continue my graduate studies, my experience in the program continues to inspire me to help solve what I believe are among the greatest challenges of our time.

What I value most about my ESPP experience are the relationships I formed.  The sense of community and the opportunities to connect with peers in the lab and in intimate seminars enabled me to find mentors among my professors and close friends among my classmates."
