Alison Delgado is a Research Scientist at the Joint Global Change Research Institute, a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and the University of Maryland at College Park. She is currently assigned through U.S. DOE to USGCRP where she is serving as Sector Coordinator for the National Climate Assessment. In that capacity, she is coordinating with government agencies, scientists, NGOs, academia and industry to develop the Third National Climate Assessment, particularly to assess impacts of climate change on sectors that include energy, agriculture and rural communities, forests, transportation and public health.
Prior to being detailed from PNNL, Alison spent four years serving U.S. DOE, U.S. EPA and other federal agencies on several greenhouse gas mitigation and climate adaptation projects. Major areas of work included providing support to other countries to implement energy efficiency programs in the buildings sector (particularly building energy codes) and methane mitigation practices in their oil, natural gas and coal sectors; assisting U.S. DOE to develop a draft strategic plan to help broaden international collaboration on building technologies; and developing regional assessments of climate change impacts and adaptive capacity.
Alison Delgado holds a B.S. in Agricultural and Resource Economics from the University of Maryland, College Park, and is completing her M.A. in Global Environmental Policy at American University.
