Kyle Meng, Class of '05, along with colleagues from Columbia University, has published a cover article for Nature magazine titled "Civil conflicts are associated with the global climate".  After more than two years of work, his research examines the role of year-to-year climate change on civil conflicts.  His interest in understanding climate change, its impacts and solutions is still very much at the center of his research, and he has Princeton to thank for inspiring him onto this track.

Kyle was the recipient of the award for best senior thesis in SEAS while at Princeton. He is presently doing graduate studies at Columbia University.

Work well done, Kyle!
