Amy L. Scarbrough
University of Pittsburgh

Amy L. Scarbrough
Amy studies ecology and supercomputing in order to one day join pioneering scientific efforts in the field of computational ecology. She hopes to use simulations to predict the impacts of mining, emissions, and other byproducts of industry in order to lend support to environmental non-profits caught in the legal battles that often accompany development interests. She is passionate about her work as project leader and president-elect for the University of Pittsburgh's chapter of Engineers for a Sustainable World. She is an artist, a writer, a traveler, and an avid but inexperienced rock climber and cook. She finds her inspiration at the foot of thousand-foot cliffs.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
