Earth & Environment Environmental Analysis & Policy major Emily Korman will be presenting her senior thesis research on “Political Ecology: the Reality of Boston’s Gas Leaks Policies” later today, Thursday April 30th, 2015, at 3:30 pm in CAS 132.
In an email sent to the department, Earth & Environment Professor Nathan Phillips described Korman’s work on the project:
“Emily Korman has spent the last year identifying and analyzing inter-relationships among entities involved in management of Boston’s natural gas pipeline infrastructure. As part of her work Emily managed to interview many key players to gain some valuable insights into this issue. I invite you to her talk…where she uses this knowledge as a basis for solutions to managing urban infrastructure problems.”
All members of the department are encouraged to attend Korman’s talk.
