About E.A. (Ev) Crunden

I am a climate and environment reporter based in Washington, D.C., currently covering the waste industry for Industry Dive’s Waste Dive.

Education: I graduated from Smith College in 2013 with a B.A. in Government & Anthropology and a focus on international relations, and later completed an M.A. at Johns Hopkins University in nonfiction writing.

Work: I previously reported for ThinkProgress’ climate branch, ClimateProgress, after several years on the general assignment beat. For ClimateProgress, I reported from Puerto Rico, Florida, Michigan, and Texas, my home state.

Prior to joining ThinkProgress, I co-edited first the North Africa & Egypt page and then the Afghanistan & Pakistan and Eastern Europe & Central Asia pages for Muftah magazine. I also worked at the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) running programs around the world, and before that I was, inexplicably, a junior paralegal at a law firm.
