Michael Brody - Doctorate: Zoology/Ecology, 1980
After finishing my PhD I began a career in environmental protection with the federal government, primarily with the Environmental Protection Agency.
But what I would like to share is some volunteer work that I have done as an environmental scientist. Thanks to some international work I have spent quite a bit of time in Russia and Ukraine. I have made some unexpected friendships and have become a student of the Russian language. I have now done volunteer teaching (in Russian) for several summers at a nature/ecology camp (pdf) for Russian children between the ages of 10 to 15, on Sakhalin island. It has been very rewarding, generally great fun and was only possible because of my education and career.
