  • Marlon Harwood: A City      Tech student working towards an Associate Degree in Applied Sciences,      Marlon says he is interested in a career in building operations because of      its growth potential and opportunities for advancement.  At the      urging of Robert Polchinski, Marlon applied to the Lab internship      project.  Under the guidance of Ian Taylor, he’s         monitoring CUNY energy data.
  • Valery Previl: A      student in the Environmental Control Technologies department of City Tech,      Valery began his internship in the field, working for NYSERDA under the      guidance of Lou Rougalo.  His second assignment is partnering with      Chris Gioulis at Time Equities.
