Arran Wass-Little is a junior from Victoria, British Columbia, studying economics and data science. Through this Fellowship, Wass-Little is interested in learning more about land valuation techniques, especially when accounting for ecological services. Additionally, he is interested in the use of data in general in the environmental sector. In his professional life, he hopes to work towards bettering the environment by using empirical tools, as understanding how data can be leveraged to make informed decisions about environmental policy is critical for the future. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with friends, cooking, hiking and watching films.
“I’m most excited to work with people across disciplines in this fellowship. Learning and collaborating together while coming from different backgrounds is a unique experience, and one that I’m not taking for granted.”
