AAG Welcomes Summer 2019 Interns
Three new interns have joined the AAG staff this summer! The AAG would like to welcome Angela, Eni, and Garrett to the organization.
Angela Yang is an incoming fourth year student at the University of Toronto, currently pursuing a B.S in Environmental Science and International Development Studies. Her research interests include hydropolitics in both the Middle East/North Africa and South Asia, as well as economies of public health in Latin America. Angela has previously interned with the Student Conservation Association, doing conservation field work in national parks in Washington, D.C.; Maryland; Virginia; and Maine. In her spare time, Angela can be found playing rugby, hiking, or exploring Washington, D.C.
Eni Awowale is a rising senior studying GIS at the University of Maryland, College Park, with a concentration in Remote Sensing and a minor in Astronomy. Eni has strong interests in conservation ecology and how land-use change and anthropogenic climate change effects environmental systems. She hopes to take her skills and knowledge in Remote Sensing and GIS to graduate school and conduct research on biodiversity hot spots and carbon fluxes throughout the Antarctic and Arctic latitudes for better climate mitigation.
At the AAG Eni is working on a NSF granted project on resolving issues with confidentiality in geospatial research and mapping U.S. University’s Geographical Departmental affinities. In her free time, Eni leads outdoor wilderness trips with the University of Maryland’s Adventure Program!
