Princeton Profiles: Zoe Sims, Finding Purpose and Passion in the Natural World

September 28th, 2018

 

Growing up in her native Hawaii, Zoe Sims, a 2017 alumna, discovered a passion for ecology that began with exploring coral reefs.

At Princeton, she conducted two years of research for her senior thesis, studying the effects of groundwater pollution on coral reefs in Bermuda. She distinguished herself as a scientist and a student, majoring in ecology and evolutionary biology and a certificate in environmental studies. After graduation, she embarked on a new journey through a one-year Princeton in Africa fellowship at the Mpala Research Centre, a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional field laboratory on a 50,000-acre reserve and ranch in central Kenya.

During her fellowship, she expanded her interests in wildlife/human interaction, science and nature writing, and community outreach.
