Planning, Rule Development, and Area Sources Intern

June 2018 - August 2018 Diamond Bar, CA
“I learned so much about a wide range of topics while working for a regulatory agency. Topics I learned about include calculating emissions inventories, CEQA processes, SIP creditable programs, REMI, transportation planning, logistics, facility-based mobile source emissions, trip generation models, socioeconomic analysis, and clean vehicle technologies. I was not confined to one topic or project; I was encouraged to participate and add insight to any project or department I was interested in.”
