NextBillion Welcomes Ryan Baebler as a Staff Writer and Intern
The NextBillion.net team is growing – and fast!? Yesterday, I introduced Grace and Moses as new staff writers; today, I am pleased to welcome Ryan Baebler to the team.? Ryan will be interning here at the World Resources Institute through May, and one of his responsibilities will be writing on NextBillion.net.
Ryan is an undergraduate student intern with WRI’s Markets and Enterprise Program. He hails from St. Louis, Missouri originally, but is pursuing a B.A. in Ecosystem Science and Policy and International Studies from the University of Miami (FL). He is in D.C. until May via The Washington Semester’s International Environment and Development Program at American University.His experience includes a stint working for a plaintiff firm in St. Louis where he performed environmental toxicology and medical research. He also investigated the hydrocarbon plume that sits under Hartford in Madison County, IL. His interest in the BoP stems partly from compassion and partly from long term practicality.
