EPP/MSI participation


  • D.Eng. from Morgan State University.
  • M.A. Geology/Earth System Science from City College (CUNY), supported by the Graduate Sciences Program and CREST.
  • B.S. Environmental Science from Medgar Evers College.

The EPP/MSI played has played an important role in our education and career trajectory by creating a path in which young Black scientists are given an opportunity to join the federal workforce, providing support to complete their degrees, but equally important, allowing us to excel within our respective field.
