Interview: UofL Sustainability Masters Alum, Ryan Lloyd

On this week’s show, your host, UofL's Sustainability Coordinator, Dr. Justin Mog, catches up with Ryan Lloyd, a 2021 graduate of UofL’s Interdisciplinary Masters in Sustainability program who has gone on to become a Grant Administrator & Planner at the Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency (KIPDA). In addition to discussing his work with KIPDA in green infrastructure planning for hazard mitigation, we discuss some of his many experiences just before and during grad school at UofL, including his Masters research on perceptions of renewable energy in Kentucky; an internship with the Kentucky Conservation Committee (KCC); his work with UofL’s Envirome Institute studying COVID in wastewater; his work as UofL’s bike mechanic and the UofL bikeshare program; and the three years he spent working for the Louisville Vegan Jerky company.
