Tim Molnar is a graduate student in the ENVS program.  His transdisciplinary interests seek to apply quantitative and qualitative methodology to bridge the gap between issues of climate change, environmental sociology, and renewable energy.  Additionally, he is currently working at INSTAAR on an NSF funded project tracking mercury cycling in the Alaskan Arctic.  Tim obtained his B.A. in mathematics and German Studies from Bates College in 2011. 

After graduation he spent two years in Austria on a grant from the Fulbright Commission, where he was simultaneously under contract with a semi-professional soccer team.  While living in rural Tirol, Tim became interest in municipal renewable energy technologies and their role in mitigating carbon emissions.  Outside of the lab you'll find Tim skiing, running, biking, climbing, and browsing Craigslist's inventory of "free stuff" in one of Boulder's fine coffee shops.
