Sara Murillo

Sara (she/her) is a first-year MS student in the Energy and Resources Group with a passion for advancing solutions to domestic energy equity issues. Her research interests are centered around the intersection of disproportionate climate change impacts (ex. extreme weather) and access to clean energy and water. In particular, she is interested in exploring how knowledge from impacted community members can inform more equitable and impactful clean energy solutions.

Prior to ERG, Sara received a BS in Environmental Engineering, a BA in the Plan II Honors program (think of it as an interdisciplinary liberal arts degree), and a Certificate in Humanitarian Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.

Sara would like to connect with ERG alumni and community for projects that align with a Master’s topic and for internships.
