Bryan Ortiz
EESL Research Assistant City Tech, CUNY

My name is Bryan Ortiz and I’m a mechanical engineering tech major. I joined the EESL to learn more on ways of making renewable and sustainable energy, and to learn how to perform research. I always had an affinity to help people with my engineering, and I felt that renewable energy was the way to go, since I love nature. However, my dream is to do engineering work in other countries as well, especially Japan or Hong Kong. I want to do that by researching and creating inventions to make the world more sustainable.

EESL Senior Research Assistant Deepakie Singh Sodhi gave a presentation on making a safer, sustainable society

Following a deep discussion about gun violence in the U.S and a series of mass shootings that have taken place between 1983 -2012 totaling 78, some key take aways are:

What does the literature tell us?

  • Failures in mental health system
  • Sentimentalization of violence – popularity of gun violence and gun rights advocates in United States

What can we do to make a change?

  • Reforms mental health system needed
  • Tell full stories (media) and sensationalize armed citizens not just shooting rampages!
