Meet the 2024 Summer Program Interns

Last month we welcomed to the EHS Support 2024 Summer Internship Program a talented, multi-disciplinary team of students from science and engineering backgrounds with varying knowledge in hydrogeology, ecology, chemistry, engineering, and data science/geographic information systems. The 10-week assignment focusing on a regional-scale assessment of the Lower Hackensack River in New Jersey is well underway, so let’s take the opportunity to learn about our fantastic interns. Find out more about their backgrounds and what they enjoy doing when they aren’t completing field work or compiling and analyzing data.
