Louisa Markow

Bloomberg Fellow

Louisa Markow is a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Analyst at the Environmental Integrity Project, a non-profit based in Washington D.C. In her role, Louisa conducts research and prepares reports illustrating how the failure to enforce environmental laws harms the environment and public health. She also designs interactive mapping tools supporting efforts to advance environmental protections and make complex datasets more easily accessible by the public. Some of the projects she has worked on include exposing the environmental justice impacts of ozone pollution in Houston, advocating for stricter regulations on wastewater pollution from oil refineries, and estimating the impacts of proposed pipeline projects. Her work spans a variety of subject areas and is largely focused on reducing pollution from the oil and gas industries and industrial agriculture.  

The Environmental Integrity Project (EIP) is a non-profit watchdog organization dedicated to protecting public health and the environment by holding polluters and government agencies accountable under the law, advocating for tough but fair environmental standards, and empowering communities fighting for clean air and clean water. We do this by writing reports and creating data tools, taking legal actions against big polluters and government agencies, and providing communities with the legal and technical resources they need to obtain the protections of environmental laws.
