In this role, he helped build out two financial models that informed the firm’s investment decisions and evaluated four investment strategies in water and agriculture in the West to guide programmatic planning.
Prior to entering the joint degree program, Corey worked in the Oceans Program at the Washington, D.C. office of Earthjustice, a non-profit environmental law firm. He also worked in marketing at Runa, a startup social enterprise tea company in Brooklyn. Corey holds an AB in human biology and economics from Brown University.
