While working with the Cohan Group, Kyle (B.S. Earth Science, 2010) completed a literature survey regarding biodiesel air pollutant emissions, compiling data to be used to determine the potential impacts of increased biodiesel usage on air quality.

Kyle is currently a J.D. student at Harvard Law School, Class of 2016, where he is a member of the Harvard Environmental Law Review and the Harvard Journal of Law and Technology. He served as a law clerk at the U.S. Department of Justice: Environment and Natural Resources Division, Denver Field Office during the summer after his first year of law school. Before starting law school, he worked for two environmental non-profits, advocating for federal climate change legislation and organizing wetland restoration community projects around New Orleans. 

Kyle is a competitive ultramarathon runner, and runs for the Altra Zero Drop Footwear Elite Team. In 2013, he finished 4th at the Leadville Trail 100, the world's second largest 100-mile race. He plans to move back to Colorado with his wife and daughter after finishing law school for work, and to continue running trail and mountain races.
