Student Hilary Yu

Hilary received her B.A. in Gov­ern­ment and Bio­log­i­cal Sci­ences, with a con­cen­tra­tion in Ecol­o­gy and Evo­lu­tion­ary Biol­o­gy in the lat­ter, from Cor­nell Uni­ver­si­ty, where she grad­u­at­ed in 2015. At ERG, Hilary is inter­est­ed in explor­ing the sci­ence-law nexus and the fac­tors – polit­i­cal, eco­nom­ic, and social – that inform the trans­la­tion of sci­ence into leg­is­la­tion. Her aca­d­e­m­ic inter­ests addi­tion­al­ly include top­ics in sus­tain­able devel­op­ment, cli­mate change edu­ca­tion, restora­tion ecol­o­gy, water and ener­gy effi­cien­cy, and envi­ron­men­tal jus­tice. Hilary was pre­vi­ous­ly involved in research­ing ener­gy and wildlife issues as an intern with the NRDC’s North­ern Rock­ies office, and in the year before com­ing to ERG, she spent some time pur­su­ing anoth­er pas­sion, work­ing in Malawi on a death penal­ty sen­tence rehear­ing project. Hilary is a Gates Foun­da­tion Mil­len­ni­um Fellow.
