BP Foundation STEM Public Policy Fellow

School:
Texas A&M University Corpus Christi

B.S., Environmental Science

Michael Bueno graduated from Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi (TAMUCC) with a degree in environmental science, focusing on policy and regulation. Originally from Mission, Texas, he always had an interest in the field of science, participating in academic science competitions, junior science fairs, and conducting simple home based experiments. Over time he developed an interest in politics, governance, and the reciprocal roles science and government play in society, especially with regards to the environment.

As member of the TAMUCC Honors Program, Michael pursued scholarships and activities dedicated to better understanding these relationships. He presented research at conferences on the topics of mercury pollution and international electronic waste policies, attended environmental conferences, volunteered for the Sierra Club, and studied the relationships between the scientific enterprise and democracy for his senior project.

After his fellowship with CHCI, Michael intends to pursue his master’s degree in international development and science policy, and looks to work with various development initiatives in the future.
