"SEAS has been vital to my career placement. The knowledge, experience, and connections gained through the PhD program helped me first secure a job at the Program on Forests (PROFOR) at the World Bank and then as Assistant Professor of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences at the University of Illinois. Especially valuable were the opportunities to carry out field research and gain experience abroad.
"SEAS and my overall U-M education gave me the tools to creatively solve just about any problem in my professional practice. An interdisciplinary approach and grounding in sound analytical methods are foundational to carving out a rewarding career that makes a contribution to solving the challenges facing our planet."
