My name is Marissa J Hettinger, BS ’20, and I majored in sociology and minored in psychology
During my time at ISU, I became increasingly interested in climate change and our role in the climate crisis. Dr. Thomas Burr encouraged me to pursue that interest through research. Under him I worked on a project looking at sustainability and the fashion industry.
Wanting to pursue my love of research and my fascination with societies role in the climate crisis, I accepted a position at the University of Arizona’s Family Studies and Human Development doctoral program where I will be researching overconsumption and climate change.
