Senior Manager, U.S. State Policy and Advocacy
Angela Seligman is CATF’s Senior Manager, U.S. State Policy and Advocacy. Angela works across all CATF programs to advocate for pragmatic economy-wide decarbonization policies that are needed to reach net-zero emissions at the state level across the U.S. in a way that is equitable and builds resilient communities.
Prior to her work with CATF, Angela worked for the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality where she was the project lead for North Dakota’s low-carbon future initiative. She also developed North Dakota’s High Efficiency Flare Program, was the lead air quality representative designing environmental justice policies for North Dakota, revised North Dakota’s Air Pollution Control Rules, and was part of a small team that implemented North Dakota’s funding distribution associated with the Volkswagen Settlement. Angela was also an ex officio member of North Dakota’s Atmospheric Resources Board.
Angela held a postdoctoral research position with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency prior to her time with the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality where she researched remediation methods for water contaminated by uranium mining.
Angela received her doctorate degree from the University of Oregon, where she researched geochemistry and paleoclimate. She also received a master’s degree in Geology from the University of Utah and a bachelor’s degree in Geology from Northern Arizona University.
Few things make her happier than the earthy smell produced when rain falls on dry soil, the smell of a pine forest, or watching the sun set over the North Dakota badlands.
