The work students complete while at Richmond has implications for others in their fields — and it doesn’t just end on their last day of class. The exposure to professional research and publishing opportunities is something we Spiders love about a UR education. 

After her junior year, Celia Landesberg, ’14, worked on an analysis of the coral reef fish trade — and her findings have recently been accepted for publication in the journal Frontiers. Her hard work as a geography and environmental studies student has paid off as she has recently moved to San Francisco to work on sustainable supply chains at EcoVadis. 

“Sustainability is something I’ve always been passionate about, and something I think needs a lot of thought leaders to actually drive behavior change,” Landesberg said in an interview when she graduated.

We are so proud her hard work is getting noticed by others and that she’s representing UR through her current success!
