Position Title
High School Student Intern

July-August 2017


Benjamin Choi was a Student Intern at the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change during the Summer of 2017. He worked to calibrate and optimize an existing simple climate model developed to be used in a web app designed for outreach purposes. At the time of his internship, Benjamin was a student at Lexington High School. In college, he is interested in studying environmental engineering in the hope of one day tackling the global issue that he believes to be the most immediately pressing and imperative to mitigate: climate change. In his free time, Benjamin enjoys playing clarinet, throwing a disc around with friends, and exploring forest trails. These walks through nature have partially inspired his desire to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change.
