  1. Hi Corinne,
    My name is Ranran Wang, a doctoral student at Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. I’m very interested in your research on water-energy nexus. I think it’ll be the topic of my dissertation. I read your paper on EST. A great research! I want to learn more about your research, so could you please share your dissertation with me? Also, I’m thinking about writing a review paper on water-energy nexus. Will you be interested to collaborate?

    Thanks a lot!
    Ranran
