Chloe Swick graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies. As an undergraduate, she studied abroad in Peru, where she learned about cultural factors driving deforestation and worked on sustainable agriculture projects that benefitted the economy of local communities. After graduating, she worked with green transportation and freight incentive programs that brought low and zero-emission vehicles and equipment to communities in New York City disproportionately impacted by diesel emissions and other industrial activities. In the future, she hopes to continue her work with disadvantaged communities by implementing policies that support energy equity and community-based clean energy. Chloe is specializing in Energy and Climate at Bren to further her understanding of energy systems and green energy technologies. After graduating, she hopes to work on modernizing California’s energy grid to utilize renewable sources while reliably supporting our state’s increasing energy demands.
