Leanne Kao

Project Management Intern, Green Labs

Leanne Kao is a third-year Environmental Engineering major working on the Green Labs Program, which works to make UC San Diego’s laboratories more resource and energy efficient, by first, assessing lab operations and practices, and then outlining steps for improvement. As a Sustainability Program Office intern, she also considers and pursues projects that may bolster campus sustainability.

Leanne is on the BioEnergy Project, under Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW), building a biodigester in Roger’s Garden. In her spare time, she enjoys finding new R&B jams and paddling with the UC San Diego Dragon Boat Team!
