Elijah Catalan

2022-2023 Fellow
Ph.D. in Environment and Sustainability

Elijah is a PhD student at the University of California, Los Angeles in the Institute of Environment and Sustainability. After completing his graduate studies, Elijah plans to enter into a research-based career where he can help protect and empower communities disproportionately impacted by environmental conditions and underrepresented in the field of environmental science. His goal is to advance environmental justice and decolonise scientific research. He is excited to build his skills in fostering collaboration, working with natural resource managers and decision makers, and effectively communicating research through the NRWD Fellowship.
