Jonah is an undergrad student studying Economics and Statistics, set to graduate in Spring 2024.
He joined the CGO in Fall 2021 to research today’s urgent environmental issues. Jonah wanted to use economics to help solve real problems and contribute to sustainable solutions. Currently, he’s researching how Artificial Intelligence can help address the ongoing issue of wildfires in the U.S. Jonah co-wrote an article called “Fighting Fires from Outer Space.”
If Jonah could share one important fact, it would be that homeowners in areas at risk of wildfires can take steps to protect their properties. They can use fire-resistant building materials, keep trees and shrubs away from their homes, and clear away dead leaves and twigs. While most homeowners can’t afford private firefighters, taking these preventive measures can greatly reduce damage during wildfire season.
After graduating, Jonah wants to become a data analyst.
About Student Research Fellowships
Undergraduate Research Fellows at the Center for Growth and Opportunity work alongside CGO’s research staff and a worldwide network of scholars. Our fellows are integral components to the Center’s research process.
During their fellowships, undergraduate students have the opportunity to write independently as well as contribute to ongoing research. Students are guided through the research process as they help answer questions related to technology and innovation, environmental stewardship, immigration, and tax policy. CGO fellows are encouraged to share their research at academic conferences, poster exhibitions, and symposiums. Our fellows also work with the Center’s outreach team to get their research to the right people, at the right time in order to make real changes in the world.
