EPIC is continuing their Career Series, with their first information session coming up on October 12th. Students interested in energy, the environment, and climate change but unsure about their career options may find this virtual career series helpful. EPIC is hosting a virtual career series with young UChicago alumni to provide UChicago students with insight into the range of opportunities and what it’s like to work in these positions. Alumni will share insights into their day-to-day lives, how they got to where they are, and what they wish they knew when they were UChicago students. Join us as we welcome Harris Public Policy ’20 graduate Sushmita Singha, Climate Risk and Energy Consultant at the World Bank.
The session will take place on Zoom, October 12th, 12:30pm-1:30pm CT. Register here to learn from Sushmita Singha, a Climate Risk and Energy Consultant at the World Bank Headquarters, D.C.
Sushmita Singha graduated with an MS in Environmental Science and Policy (MSESP) in June 2020 from the Harris School of Public Policy. She was an EPIC Fellow during her master’s at UChicago, and worked on randomized evaluations of energy and environmental projects. Prior to joining UChicago, she had several years of experience in professional and academic research in India. At Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), she worked on a rural electric power project and smart metering technology for reducing distribution losses. She also worked on environment, urban, and economic research and project management at several organizations in New Delhi, including the National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA), The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), and the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER).
