With a portfolio of projects covering 31 countries, Gradient addresses some of the most pressing environmental and human health issues across the globe.

“What I find meaningful in my work is being able to translate the science into information that people can use to make better decisions. Whether it’s decisions about business practices that impact the environment, or products that impact human and environmental health, I love that we can use our expertise and translate that science in a way that makes a difference.”
“I really love the culture at Gradient. As a Latinx woman in science, I like that Gradient staff come from a variety of backgrounds and are very welcoming. It’s an environment that promotes learning and asking lots of questions.”
“I love a data organizational challenge, the puzzle. Taking a giant, messy glob of data and ending up with a neat, clean package is very satisfying to me.”
