Noelle Eckley SelinEsther and Harold E. Edgerton Career Development Associate Professor, Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at MIT

"My ESPP experience gave me a thorough grounding in both the scientific and policy questions important to understanding the environment. After graduating, I spent a few years working on environmental policy issues in the U.S. and Europe. When I decided to start a Ph.D program in atmospheric science, I had a solid scientific background in addition to a strong policy focus. I am now a faculty member in an interdisciplinary department, where my work builds on both my science and policy backgrounds. ESPP is a unique program, and my experiences as an ESPP concentrator at Harvard were a strong influence on where I am today. I even still refer back to my senior thesis!" - Class of '99
