Easton Evans, B.S.
Graduate Researcher & Teaching Assistant
Easton Evans is a second-year graduate student and research assistant for The Sayes Group. After graduating from University of Arkansas with his B.S. in Environmental Science, Easton made his way back to his hometown of Waco, Texas to pursue his Masters in Environmental Science at Baylor University. His current project involves identifying the social science aspects of greenhouse gas emissions in at-risk neighborhoods (e.g. neighborhoods with industrial plants). This includes applying theory-based tools to collect information about a community’s knowledge and beliefs about greenhouse gases and their effect on the environment.
With regard to environmental science, Easton is most interested in sustainability and toxicology. He is trained in geographic information system (GIS) and holds certifications in quality assurance.
Easton is expected to graduate in May 2018 and hopes to continue his education by completing a PhD program in Environmental Science. During his doctoral program, he plans on creating an educational framework to teach individuals about environmental science. Ultimately, Easton hopes to further his initial research and create a biological sequestering agent that helps decrease the world’s carbon footprint especially in high emission areas.
