Elliot Scheuer

Student, Cornell University

Hello! My name is Elliot and I'm a undergraduate at Cornell University studying Environmental Engineering. I'm interested in how we can apply engineered solutions to make agriculture more sustainable. My research focuses on the circular bionutrient economy which in essence is about finding solutions to some of the worlds biggest problems by identifying interconnected problems. In my free time I love playing rugby, reading, learning languages (I'm learning Mandarin and Spanish), creative writing, and cooking.
Fiona Naughton

Student, Georgetown University

Hi! My name is Fiona and I'm a member of the Class of 2026 at Georgetown University, where I am majoring in Culture and Politics with a concentration in International Labor Policy and minoring in English.  My research focuses on the intersection between artificial intelligence and new forms of labor exploitation. Although many AI softwares are thought to be objective, they have been—and continue to be—reliant on low-wage workers with normal human biases. I hope to chronicle the ways that the AI revolution has created more accepted, yet equally pernicious, ways of mistreating vulnerable workers, yet promoted the idea that these softwares are made independent of human influence. Beyond Laidlaw, I absolutely love to read, both fiction and non-fiction. I could talk about books for hours and am always needing new recommendations, so please let me know if you have any suggestions!

Student Researcher, Cornell University

Hi! I am a rising sophomore at Cornell University pursuing an independent major of Interdisciplinary Studies (Cognitive Science, Education, User-Centered Design). Through Laidlaw, I am conducting research on the social-ecological impacts of Indonesia's capital relocation and am excited to explore the intersection between bioacoustics, Indigenous knowledge, and public education. Feel free to connect with me on here or on LinkedIn!
