Thomas Jang is a junior at George Washington University with a major in Environmental Studies and a minor in Public Health. Currently living in Washington, DC, he also calls Irvine, California home. Coming from an environment that is growing more susceptible to wildfires and climate change impacts, he hopes to enter the field of urban planning and health policy. He is particularly interested in cities, in terms of how they have developed over time in response to migrations, epidemics, and climate change. Likewise, he enjoys playing with his Labrador Retriever, watching the Harry Potter movies, and replicating urban landscapes on Minecraft.
