CUER Fellow Georgiana Tan is in her third year at CUNY Law School. She became interested in environmental law and justice when she travelled to Oaxaca, Mexico as a delegate with the Inter-American Law Student Association recognizing water rights for indigenous peoples. She interned for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, and attended international environmental law classes at Vermont Law School. As a law student, she has written and presented on various topics such as deforestation, locally undesirable land uses, investment agreements on environmental governance, and the law of armed conflict. She is currently a CUER Fellow and research assistant for Professor Rebecca Bratspies.
Ms. Tan currently lives in her hometown of Queens, New York. When her nose is not in the law books, she loves traveling, watching indie movies, hula hooping at the beach, and strumming her guitar.
