Evvan Morton

Evvan Morton obtained her Ph.D. in Civil, Environmental, and Sustainable Engineering from Arizona State University with a certificate in Responsible Innovation. Evvan’s research examined the effectiveness of U.S. policies that govern carbon dioxide emissions and atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide to mitigate climate change, and explored the necessity for carbon dioxide removal through political, technological, and ethical lenses. Evvan is also the co-founder of BioGals, a non-profit organization that empowers women of color in STEM through participation in global sustainable-development projects. Motivated to bridge the gap between science and decision- making, Evvan looks forward to a career in science policy to develop innovative policies for transitioning to a sustainable energy future.
