About the Millennium Fellow
My name is Ryan McNamara and I study Economics with Environmental Sciences & Policy and Chinese minors. I am particularly interested in climate change, and I hope to pursue a career in climate policy. My academic interests include climate and environmental issues, foreign policy, and politics/government. Outside of class I love hiking, running, tennis, TV shows, music, and traveling.
