An atmospheric scientist is a crucial set of eyes in Alaska, where she monitors the melting Arctic at Toolik Field Station. An environmental engineer is a tech innovator in Indonesia, where he’s using social media data to warn residents of extreme monsoon flooding in Jakarta. Michigan Engineers Brie Van Dan and Frank Sedlar are bold and brilliant and driven to make a difference in the world at a pivotal time in human history.  

As part of the University of Michigan global storytelling, Michigan Engineer Magazine’s photographer and filmmaker Marcin Szczepanski and writers Nicole Moore and Ben Logan documented their work.
