Carly Peltier is a first-year AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow in the Building Technologies Office, supporting the Commercial Buildings Integration program. She earned her Ph.D. in Earth and Environmental Sciences from Columbia University where she studied the climate and glaciers of the past using geochemical and geomorphic methods. During her doctorate she reconstructed past fluctuations of glaciers in Patagonia and in the watershed of Santiago, Chile as a Fulbright Scholar. Most recently, Carly was a postdoctoral fellow at Dartmouth College, where she reconstructed the climate of the last ice age in the tropics using remote sensing and glacier modeling. She earned her A.B. from Mount Holyoke College where she double majored in Economics and Geology. Carly is excited to apply her background in past climate research to help reach our current climate targets and looks forward to a career dedicated to helping build a clean and equitable energy future.
