Carolyn Snyder is the Director of U.S. EPA's Climate Protection Partnerships Division. The Division uses the power of partnerships to remove market barriers for energy efficiency and renewable energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, resulting in economic and environmental benefits. The Division's programs include the EPA's flagship partnership program, ENERGY STAR, which offers energy efficiency solutions across the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. Other programs include the Green Power Partnership, the Combined Heat and Power Partnership, the Center for Corporate Climate Leadership, and the State and Local Energy and Environment Program.
Dr. Snyder has spent the last decade working on climate and energy policy at institutions around the world. She received her Ph.D. from Stanford University’s Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources, with a specialization in climate science and policy. Her advisors were IPCC leaders Stephen Schneider and Christopher Field. Her research sought to better characterize important uncertainties in our understanding and predictions of climate change. Her dissertation examined the Earth’s sensitivity to climate change over the past million years. She also assessed the impacts of extreme weather events in California.
Prior to Stanford, she completed a Marshall Scholarship, where she earned a Masters in Environmental Change and Management from the University of Oxford, and a Masters in Quaternary Science from the University of Cambridge.
I was drawn to the amazing breadth in expertise at Stanford, with exceptional opportunities for study and research across many disciplines, often facilitated by its several interdisciplinary institutes. I found E-IPER's flexible curriculum and interdisciplinary research focus very attractive as fitting with my goals for my Ph.D. Rather than a dictated path, E-IPER students are treated like junior colleagues and given the support and flexibility to find our own way.
