Fall 2022 Podcast: Life of a PhD Student
Research in the department is not only intriguing but also impactful. The 2nd episode of our “be CEEn” podcast is out. Dr. Kelly Twomey Sanders, Ph.D. and her Ph.D. student, Stepp Mayes, discuss the benefits of "pre-cooling" as well as the group’s work on water-energy-climate systems. The podcast also provides insights into the life and work of an environmental researcher at the intersection of energy, water, power, and policy and the interdisciplinary work in the department.
