Maggie Grabow is a Ph.D. candidate in Energy & Resources in the Gaylord Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies with a certificate in the Certificate on Humans and the Global Environment (CHANGE). Advised by Dr. Jonathan Patz in the Center for Sustainability and Global Health, her general research interests include how the built environment affects health.
Maggie completed her Master of Science degree in the fall of 2007. In her thesis, she researched the impacts of increased bicycling and reduced car travel in Madison, and the impact on personal fitness and human health, local air pollution and human health, and greenhouse gas mitigation/climate change. After completing her thesis, she spent the year contributing to an EPA STAR investigation while broadening the scope of this project by looking at the impacts of bicycling in the ten largest cities in the Midwest.
Before coming to SAGE and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Maggie received her Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from Washington University in St. Louis, with minors in French and Legal Studies (2005). At Washington University, Maggie was a seven-time NCAA Division III Championship qualifier in cross-country and track, with four All-American Honors in track. At UW-Madison, Maggie completed her eligibility by qualifying for the NCAA Division I Championship in cross-country and indoor track.
In her spare time, Maggie enjoys running, performing West African dance, cooking, and scrap-booking.
