Current Interns

Maddie Bartels is a rising junior from Carlsbad, California majoring in Earth and Planetary Sciences and pursuing a certificate in Energy Studies.  Her interest in the intersection of earth sciences, carbon capture, and renewable energy was sparked during a four-month travel venture around the Mountain West working on small farms and ranches.  After learning about the ways in which energy access and climate change affect rural farming and ranching practices, Maddie is now eager to work with the CC Lab to address interdisciplinary environmental and social issues.  At Yale, Maddie is a research assistant at the Yale Metal Geochemistry Center, a leader in Christian Union Lux, and a member of the Yale International Relations Association, and club gymnastics team.  In her free time, Maddie can be found hiking, sampling vegan desserts at Claire’s Corner Copia, reading on the Trumbull College hammock, or drinking tea with friends around campus.
