Claire Keckley is an undergraduate student at Tulane studying both physics and environmental studies. She recently completed a project in coordination with Tulane’s Office of Sustainability in which she modeled the utility usage in Tulane residence halls, comparing occupied and unoccupied dorms to gauge the degree to which students can impact utility consumption and subsequent greenhouse gas emissions. The results from her project can help the Office of Sustainability determine the potential scope of impact of a campaign encouraging students to reduce their individual utility usage. Prior to this, she worked on theoretical physics research at the University of California, Santa Barbara, confirming a component of a calculation related to the quantum properties of black holes.

She is passionate about environmental issues and fascinated by physics, and she is exploring ways to apply physics-related knowledge to a career in the environmental sector. In her free time, she volunteers at the Mars Place Community Garden, bikes all around New Orleans with her friends, and plays scrum-half for Tulane Women’s Rugby.
