This past summer, Alana had the opportunity to work with the Center for Ethics and Public Service at the University of Miami School of Law as part of the IBES Summer Internship program. She has also worked for ISMSolutions, a Department of Energy consulting firm, and volunteered with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. At Brown, she conducts research for the Rhode Island ACLU through Brown Initiative for Policy and volunteers with the Brown Elementary After School Mentoring program. She is also involved with BOMBS, WISE, and UCS, and enjoys hiking, tennis, and playing the piano outside of school.
