Two ERG Alumni Named Top 50 Green Innovators and Influencers by Grist Magazine

Sam Arons (MS ’07) and Joshua Apte (PhD ’13) were named as the 2019 “Grist 50” — a list of the most innovative and influential leaders in sustainability. Grist is an online environmental magazine and annually releases a list of high achieving “world fixers”.

As the director of sustainability at Lyft, Arons is working toward making Lyft fully carbon neutral and 100% reliant on renewable energy sources. Apte is an assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin and uses methods from environmental engineering, aerosol science, exposure assessment, and environmental health to study human exposure to air pollution in urban environments.

That’s debatable. Personally, I know only one case where such a request turned into a real romance, but even one case is a statistic rubmaps. My former classmate so met with his daughter Sveta, after they were together half an hour crawling down a dark street on his hands and knees, trying to find a match for Andrew’s lens. However, keep in mind that at that time Andrew was not trying to get acquainted with the Sveta: he much more wanted to find the lens.
