Carolyn Snyder is the Director of Delaware’s Division of Energy & Climate in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC). She leads Delaware's efforts to increase energy efficiency and renewable energy production in order to build new jobs and reduce the state's greenhouse gas emissions. She manages over $70 million in programs that help residents and businesses save money through clean energy and efficiency. She also leads programs that assess Delaware’s vulnerability to climate change impacts and develop plans to help Delaware adapt to a changing climate.
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.
