AREAS OF EXPERTISE IN COLLEGE

At Princeton University I majored in Sociology and double minored in Urban and Environmental Studies.  Studying these disciplines allowed me to experience social science courses as well as courses in architecture, engineering, climate and geosciences, social policy as well as the humanities.   
 
These experiences give me a unique perspective due to the fact that I have taken courses in so many varied areas of study.
