“It is an incredible honor to be named a Marshall Scholar, and an incredible privilege to share this honor with the team of mentors, friends, and family standing behind me. I look forward to pursuing a joint MRes + PhD in AI for the Study of Environmental Risks (AI4ER) at the University of Cambridge, where I will advance research at the intersection of machine learning and climate science to inform present and future climate change mitigation and adaptation initiatives.” – Andrew McDonald
