Esther Mann '15
My name is Esther Mann, and I am a junior majoring in Environmental Studies, Neuroscience, and Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I hope to be a doctor in the future and practice Oncology. On campus, I am a captain of the Brandeis Ski and Snowboard Team, I am a member of the Student Conduct Board, and I am in the Adagio Dance Company. I studied and performed field research in Bhutan this past summer and learned a lot about forestry, socioeconomic values, and ecological practices. Since I am looking to be an Oncologist, I am interested in the link between chemicals in our environments and cancer, but I have to admit that my favorite part of Environmental Studies is Ecology. I mean…who doesn’t love animals? Feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com with any questions or concerns about the program, courses, study abroad, or if you have any YouTube videos of cute animals!
Adam Krebs '14
My name is Adam Krebs, and I am a senior majoring in Environmental Studies, with a minor in HSSP. I plan on pursuing research focused on vector borne illnesses after graduating. In addition to being a UDR, I am the treasurer of BEMCo and the Co-President of the Brandeis Brewing Club. This past summer, I conducted research under the guidance of Professor Olson collecting ticks in Weston, MA. This research is the start of a long term study examining the effects of a deer hunt initiative on the back legged tick density. I was also a part of the Environmental Field Semester during the Fall of 2012; so if you ever saw a random group of students looking at trees....yea that was probably me. With that said, I am beyond excited to be UDR for the Environmental Studies major! If you have any suggestions or ideas for the major I would love to sit down with you and discuss them. Please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the department, professors, or classes. I'm here to help any way I can!
