Emily Yang, a physics major and environmental analysis minor, from Arcadia, Calif., will
head to Landau, Germany, to study the interplay between climate change and
greenhouse gas emissions from small rivers and streams, with Dr. Andreas Lorke
of the Environmental Physics Department at the Landau campus of
the University of Koblenz-Landau. Her future plans include the possibility
of graduate school in engineering, physics or earth sciences
