Ethan Moon

Fulbright-Lancaster University Postgraduate Award - MA in Political Ecology

Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Ethan graduated from Dartmouth College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and Music. During his sophomore year, Ethan conducted public policy research, using data and empirical methods to highlight health disparities between boys and girls in New Hampshire.

This experience fuelled his desire to work at the intersection of public policy and econometrics, using data to inform legislators and put numbers to issues where previously there had been none. As a Presidential Scholar, he continued his studies with research on corporate governance, examining issues of minority tokenization and leadership structures. Ethan is also a former member of Dartmouth's varsity swim team, a DEI advocate, and an active member of the university's economic research group. In the UK, he will pursue an MA in Political Ecology at Lancaster University, tying issues of corporate governance and sustainability together through an intersectional approach. Aside from his studies, Ethan looks forward to engaging with Lancaster's musical scene, traveling around the English countryside, and learning how to play golf.
