Leonard Shaw


Vice Chair of Public Relations


I am Leonard Shaw and I am a first year in the Master of Science in Applied Geosciences (MSAG) program with a concentration in hydrogeology. I was born in Hawaii, raised in Los Angeles, attended college in Chicago, and now my "Journey to the East" has taken me to Philly! I have a B.S. in Geophysical Sciences from the University of Chicago, where I studied biogeochemical cycling of marine environments. Here at Penn, I plan to begin a career in the remediation of environmental hazards and contaminants.

I am the Vice Chair of Public Relations for PAAGSA and will be helping Octavia represent PAAGSA among the graduate student organizations across campus. My personal interests include cooking, casual cycling, lots of genres of music, and anime. I hope to have a great year with all of you! Hit me up at leoshaw@sas.upenn.edu if you ever want hang out or discuss anything PAAGSA.
