Shreya studies economics and statistics and has cultivated an interest in energy policy, clean energy innovation and deployment, and data analytics. Her extracurricular experiences – including working on implementing the Paris Agreement at the U.S. Department of State and researching policy instruments to reduce carbon emissions through building energy efficiency with the Roosevelt Institute – have revealed that sustainable funding pipelines are crucial to commercializing clean energy infrastructure. Her research on environmental quality metrics in Seattle has also demonstrated that data alone will not generate environmental progress. She will pursue a doctorate related to climate finance to gain the analytical and policy tools to engage competing stakeholders in joint clean energy initiatives. Shreya also enjoys running and trying new local farmers' markets.
