Claire Lecornu received her Master of Public Affairs (DC Concentration) at the LBJ School. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Richmond, double majoring in philosophy, politics, economics and law (PPEL) and Mathematics. She is interested in data-based environmental policy, specifically as it pertains to sustainable urban development. While earning her bachelor’s degree, Lecornu interned with her university’s Office for Sustainability for three academic years, and also spent two summers interning with an environmental advocacy nonprofit in both its national and Texas locations. Through these internships, she developed a strong interest in the ways policy can be used to promote and shape more sustainable cities, especially as growing urban populations will force cities to implement new strategies for meeting the needs of their populations. During her graduate studies in Austin, she interned with the RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service, and the Texas Education Agency.
