Kevin Ummel '11 (USA)

I was recently offered a position at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Vienna, Austria, where I will join a team working on energy poverty and equity issues. This is one of many steps in my career path which ultimately results out of studying in the MESPOM program.

MESPOM-IIIEE alumni reunion in Beijing

 Tatirose Vijitpan and Chunsheng Yao

Batch 4 (2008-2010)

On November 9th, 2014, taking opportunity of Prof. Don Huisingh visiting Beijing and three EMP alumni Tareq, Jessika and Nurzat attending the UNEP Enlighten Global Efficient Lighting Forum, alumni of MESPOM and IIIEE enjoyed a fantastic dinner together. Coordinated by Xiao Li (batch 5), the reunion gathered 15 alumni of MESPOM as well as IIIEE former students and visiting scholars, not only Chinese but also non-Chinese who were in Beijing at the time. Several batches of MESPOM alumni joined the gathering, from the earliest batch 1 to the latest batch 8, as well as batches 4, 5 and 6. Most alumni are still working in the field of environment, such as protecting air and water, promoting renewable energy and dealing with climate change. The reunion created a good opportunity for alumni to meet, exchange work and life experience and strengthened the connection among each other. Prof. Don also shared the news about the Global Conference on Cleaner Production and Sustainable Consumption and the Global Exhibition “Sustainable Futures in Practice”, which will be held in November 2015.
