ESPM Ph.D. Student Wins Switzer

October 23, 2012

Esther Conrad, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, was among twenty environmental scholars to receive the prestigious Switzer Environmental Fellowship for her work on water resources issues. The fellowship is awarded annually by the Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation to recognize achievements of environmental leaders and their potential to drive positive change.

Conrad seeks to understand how collaborative approaches to water governance can inform adaptive climate change strategies. She works with the Climate Change Program of the California Deptartment of Water Resources and expects her research to inform how the agency supports the regional water planning process.
