Research IT welcomes Communications Intern Emilia Malachowski to our team. Emilia will be working with Berkeley Research Computing (BRC) users to report on how the program benefits researchers in their fields of study. The collection of stories and interviews that will be gathered through this work will convey how BRC is supporting the evolution of data science and research computing across the campus.
Emilia is a current UC Berkeley sophomore majoring in Society & Environment and minoring in Public Policy and Conservation Resource Studies. Originally from Washington, D.C., Emilia hopes to go to law school post graduation. During her time at UC Berkeley it has become increasingly evident to Emilia that in the field of environmental science, accurate, reliable, and timely climate data analysis will be necessary in order to push policies in Congress that will be most effective in protecting future generations and the future of this planet. However, without research computing, the future of climate science would be bleak.
Emilia is also an undergraduate researcher for Assistant Professor Kathryn De Master, for whom she examines a variety of readings and passages aimed at restructuring De Master’s course readings for her class “Sociology and Political Ecology of Agro-Food Systems,” in order to create a more cohesive and inclusive syllabus. Additionally, Emilia was a research intern for the International Marine Mammal Project, a project of the Earth Island Institute, which seeks justice through legal means for cetaceans.
Emilia is excited for the semester ahead working with BRC!
