Shae Selix '12


Shae Selix '12 is an environmental science concentrator with interests in natural resource management and climate change.  He is currently working with Professor Meredith Hastings (Geological Sciences) and Barbara Morin (Office of Air Resources, RI Department of Environmental Management) to examine the extent of various air pollutants along the major freeways in Providence.  They hope to inform governmental agencies and local environmental groups about the health and environmental justice implications of transportation-related air pollution.  Shae is involved in the Outdoor Leadership and Environmental Education Program, a partnership between the Swearer Center and the Met High School, as well as Watermyn Coop.  Off campus, Shae enjoys returning to the warm weather of his home in California where he likes to ski, hike, and go to the beach.
