A Environmental Studies Colloquium Series talk titled "Shacksbury Cider, from Middlebury's Knoll to a National Brand" by David Dolginow '09, Co-founder, and Vice President of Shacksbury Cider.

Join David Dolginow '09 as he discusses the journey from living at Middlebury College's Weybridge House and working a summer internship on the Knoll to founding Shacksbury Cider and living permanently in New England, despite being an avid KC Royals fan. Shacksbury is now sold in 35+ states and produced in a 36,000 square foot facility in Vergennes, Vermont.

David Dolginow '09 grew up in Kansas City in a family of retailers and entrepreneurs and the apple doesn't fall far... After spending three years at Sunrise Orchards in Vermont, David co-founded Shacksbury Cider with Colin Davis '03 in spring 2013, after an exciting but nerve-racking conversation at dollar Miller draft night at Fire and Ice to outline their partnership.

A Howard E. Woodin Environmental Studies Colloquium Series talk titled "As below, so above: Economics and the orbital commons" by Akhil Rao, Assistant Professor of Economics, Middlebury College.

Satellites are increasingly integrated into our lives and responses to the climate crisis, yet the environment in which satellites operate is poorly understood and poorly governed. In this talk, we will take an economic perspective on the challenge of governing the orbital commons. What can we learn from our terrestrial experiences of commons management, and how can we ensure future generations continue to benefit from satellites?

Akhil Rao joined the Economics faculty at Middlebury College as an Assistant Professor in the fall of 2019. His primary research interests are in environmental and computational economics, with a focus on outer space and simulation modeling. Akhil received his PhD from the University of Colorado Boulder, and BS in Business Administration from the University of California, Riverside. His dissertation research focused on the economic dynamics of orbit use and applying that understanding to policy design and integrated assessment modeling. He teaches courses in statistics and environmental economics.
