My personal focus within the scope of team 1 is on the legal and political aspects of the Amazon project.  Thus the information found here will pertain mostly to those fields. 

Contact Information:

My E-mail is willr3@mit.edu.  I check it at least once a day (usually at night though) and try to check it before Wednesday team meetings.  However, with the way things are going now (in Mission) I'm going to start checking it around 3 times a day (p-sets permitting).
