2019 B.A., Environmental Analysis - Policy Track, Pitzer College
Aviva Wolf-Jacobs is a recent graduate of Pitzer College in Claremont, California. While at Pitzer, Aviva studied Environmental Analysis with a focus on Public Policy. As an undergraduate student, she worked as a research assistant in an interdisciplinary environmental health lab examining the impacts of informal housing on public health in Brazil.
Aviva also conducted GIS-based research offering supportive evidence for an Environmental Justice amendment to The Bay Plan, a primary policy document at environmental planning and regulatory agency San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission.
Most recently, Aviva has been conducting research on nutrition education accessibility in New York City, and looking at connections between nutrition and health for her job at not-for-profit organization Lenox Hill Neighborhood House.
A Bay Area native, Aviva is excited to return to sunny California to dive deeper into the worlds of public health, environmental justice, climate change and spatial analysis. As a Population, Health, and Place student at USC, Aviva plans to study environmental and social determinants of health, and use empirical data to guide policy and create community-driven change.
