Years in Fellowship Benefits Oceans Today

Policy areas and skills that I gained exposure to during my fellowship years continue to open doors for me today.

Despite the prevalent misconception that the U.S. is not addressing climate change...

As a AAAS Diplomacy Fellow for the U.S. Department of State in the Office of Global Change, I had a prime opportunity to exercise my technical background and my policy experience. My tasks ran the gamut from representing the U.S. in multilateral negotiations to the not so glamorous conversion of electronic file formats for my boss.

With tongue firmly in cheek...

I was able to bring a number of hard-earned competencies to bear on issues of science and technology policy and management. Moreover, I was surrounded by some of the most enthusiastic professionals I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
