Five Minutes with Wendy Hunter Barker, Assistant Dean of Academic Programs and Marketing, UC San Diego

"In my youth, we moved a lot and I experienced many different states and American subcultures. We often lived with other single-mother families and met a wide variety of people. In my teens, I was fortunate enough to spend a summer in Europe and my love for exploring different cultures was cemented. I knew I wanted to work in a field that allowed me access to people from around the world in a way that promoted the best globalism has to offer."

Five Minutes with APPAM Student Member Rebecca Miller

"I realized that I loved working in environmental fields as a freshman in college. After graduation, I moved to Washington, D.C., and worked as a Science Policy Fellow for the Science and Technology Policy Institute. In supporting a project on local adaptation planning for the Obama Administration, I realized that the academic literature had only limited information as to why municipalities designed adaptation plans or even how to define a “good” adaptation plan."
