Meet Our Students - Joshua Crofton-Macdonald
What year and semester did you begin EES graduate studies?
What degree are you pursuing?
Who are your academic advisors?
Dr. Darren Ranco and Dr. Shaleen Jain
What prior degrees do you have?
B.S in Environmental Engineering from Cornell University
Why did you choose to attend grad school at UMaine? Why did you choose EES?
I chose UMaine because after four years away from home as an undergraduate, I realized the significance of doing environmental studies near where I want to practice since environmental factors and the landscape vary greatly around the country as do the necessary skills to accurately study and manage it. I chose EES because it provides a flexible program for me to fit my research, classes, and desire to continue my engineering training.
What classes are you looking forward to?
I am excited about the whole experience!
What has been your most rewarding research experience and why?
As an undergraduate I did research with Cornell University Sustainable Design and I am interested in continuing my work with sustainable development and outreach.
Are you interested in mentoring undergraduates?
