Manus McCaffery graduated from Stanford with a focus on energy and environmental policy. Afterwards, he moved to Mongolia to work with the Ambassador at Large of Mongolia. For three years, Manus worked on regional energy and environmental policies alongside numerous ministers, parliament members, and policy experts. His focus was on nuclear energy – in particular, how to sustainably mine uranium and increase international security and cooperation. In this position, Manus was a visiting researcher at the University of Tokyo’s (Todai) Department of Nuclear Engineering, as well as a visiting lecturer to PhD students for a Seoul National University and Todai summer school on multilateral energy cooperation. Manus was in Japan when the Fukushima Daiichi disaster struck, and in the ensuing instability became deeply involved in nuclear education as well as in multi-country policy talks. He then relocated to Ecuador and worked in environmental risk management and biodiversity conservation efforts for USAID and USAID-funded projects. Manus often traveled to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where he coordinated the risk management component of a Food for Peace project. Manus has also traveled to Honduras and Malawi to author environmental assessments, and to Haiti, El Salvador, and Paraguay to lead environmental compliance workshops. Most recently, he completed an MPhil at the University of Cambridge. At Yale, he plans to focus on the intersection between energy consumption, the environment, and security.
