Graduate Research Assistant – Lecture Series Coordinator
The Evergreen State College
Tiffany Webb was born in Birmingham, Alabama where she witnessed the extreme pollution and poverty associated with heavy industry in the area. Over the years, this experience influenced her interest in environmental justice and sustainable development. She recently graduated from the University of Alabama in Huntsville with her B.S. in Earth System Science with a focus on the human dimensions and societal impacts of environmental concerns. As an undergraduate, she conducted research on climate change, environmental vulnerability, and sustainability with the University of Alabama in Huntsville as well as other groups such as the Water Center for the Humid Tropics of Latin America and the Caribbean (CATHALAC) and the NASA DEVELOP National Program.
She is currently a graduate student in the Master of Environmental Studies program at The Evergreen State College and will pursue an expanded knowledge of environmental research and social justice that can be applied to assisting vulnerable communities. With SPP, Tiffany coordinates SPP’s Science and Sustainability Lecture Series held at Washington Corrections Center for Women and Stafford Creek Corrections Center. She is enthusiastic about environmental research and sustainability in all aspects of society and the opportunities the Sustainability in Prisons Projects provides to Washington inmates.
