Ben Evanson


Yooo what’s crackin ! I hope your day is going awesome, and is now going even more awesome since you’ve gotten to learn a little bit more about the NET Project. A little bit about me, my name is Ben, and I took over the Project in 2020 from our founder, Vish. It’s been an absolute joy of mine to see this project grow and to watch our NET community develop into such a cool collection of people, ideas, and passions. When I’m not learning about NETs, some of my hobbies include: climbing, sculpting, soccer, camping, volleyball, cooking, napping, kayaking, yoga, and exploring. If you have any questions about the Project, feel free to reach out to me and I’ll be in touch ! Have a great day ! Love da NETs, baby. Love da NETs.

Howdy! I am a 5’11’’ senior Mechanical Engineer who enjoys playing guitar, a nice soccer session, and the outdoors . The NET Project has been part of my life for the past two years and I couldn’t be more proud of it. This organization introduced me to a whole new world of possibilities, redirecting my career towards a cause that needs much attention. LOVE DA NETS BABY

Zachariah Collins

Direct Air Capture Team Co-Lead

Hello, my name is Zach and I’m a 4th year Chemical Engineer. I love to hike and bike and basically all the other outdoorsy things. I chose the NET Project because I hope to apply my engineering skills to help fight climate change. Luckily, I’ve found that this passion is one of the key pillars of NETP and it attracts some of the most intelligent and kind people I’ve ever met.


Vilasini Nayar

Policy Team Lead

Hi! I’m a third year double majoring in music and government (I used to be a cs major and I’ve recently switched). My hobbies include reading, playing/watching sports, and acoustic guitar. I chose NET because it focuses on innovative solutions to climate change. It constantly spikes my curiosity and I love learning about new ways different companies are going about decarbonization.


Andy Dareing

Policy Team Co-Lead

I’m Andy! I’m a senior (terrifying) studying government and Plan II. I joined the NET Project because I think it’d be like really cool to still have a habitable planet for a while, and I truly enjoy collaborating with the minds in this org to work toward that in whatever way we can, big or small. Energy policy and the policy-making process is fascinating to me, especially here in Texas — join the Policy Team if you’re the same! Outside of NET, you’ll find me playing pool, biking, or watercoloring 🙂

Hola! I’m a 2nd year Chemical Engineering major from Mexico hoping to work with energy/NETs in the future! Whenever I’m not studying, I enjoy playing piano (anything by Ludovico Einaudi is top-tier), hanging out with friends, and exploring Austin. Being a part of the NET Project has allowed me to meet a bunch of wonderful, smart people who share my passion for environmental protection, and I can’t wait to see what we will accomplish this year. If you have any questions regarding the website/newsletter don’t hesitate to reach out!

Being a member is so enriching and fun that I wanted to contribute even more by joining the officer team!


Brenna Van Skiver

I’m a senior Corporate Communications major also pursuing a certificate in Environment & Sustainability. My hobbies include visiting national parks, exploring Austin, and treating Whole Foods like a museum.
