Hunter Student Spotlight


Cloé Mueller ’22 will graduate from Hunter College with a BA in Environmental Studies and BA/MA in Economics. Cloé was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to research the concentration of calcium carbonate in the Rhône River delta and its effect on alkalinity in the Mediterranean Sea, an indicator of global warming. She will simultaneously study for a master’s degree in oceanography at Sorbonne Université or Université Paris-Saclay. Cloé was a varsity swimmer at Hunter for two years, was a member of the Thomas Hunter Honors Program, and won both the Eva Kastan Grove Fellowship and the Raab Presidential Fellowship. During the past year, as she was completing a master’s degree in Economics, she also served as an adjunct instructor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Science. After her Fulbright, Cloé plans to pursue a Ph.D. in Marine Science and Conservation and ultimately wants to apply her interdisciplinary understanding of the natural and social sciences to inform policy making in international marine affairs.
