Lily Lyu

I am a rising junior pursuing a B.S. in Earth Systems (the Energy, Science and Technology track!) and a B.A. in Economics. I have always been fascinated by the intersection of these two areas and hope to one day promote market-based climate policies around the world through IGO/NGO work. In my free time find me at the gym or grabbing a matcha latte at Starbucks.
