Isaac Evans

MPP (2018)

Isaac was a Master’s of Public Policy student at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, focusing his studies on environmental policy and sustainable development. Throughout his first year at the Humphrey School he worked with Dr. Chan and three other master’s students to analyze how different community solar models in Minnesota vary in their distribution of costs and benefits; work that will inform his research into community solar across states, and low to-moderate income access to solar. He is also using multivariate regression to research how vehicle-bike passing distance varies by bike infrastructure and road type as one piece of evidence for cities looking to build out their bike infrastructure. This work is done in collaboration with Dr. Greg Lindsey and Hennepin County. When not at the school he enjoys exploring the local food scene, playing soccer, hiking, and volunteering at the Sierra Club.
