Senior Carbon Capture Policy Manager
Angela Seligman is CATF’s Senior Carbon Capture Policy Manager, where she designs and advocates for policies that promote the development and deployment of carbon capture and storage technologies. She also leads CATF’s stakeholder engagement with allied NGOs, coalitions, businesses, project developers, and independent scientific experts working on carbon capture. In this work, she seeks synergies that expand the deployment of carbon capture and storage around the world to support CATF’s mission of global decarbonization.
Angela was formerly the Senior Midwest Regional Policy Manager on CATF’s U.S. State Policy team where she advocated for pragmatic decarbonization policies across the U.S. Midwest that touched on all CATF program equities.
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 was also the lead air quality representative designing environmental justice policies for North Dakota and revised North Dakota’s Air Pollution Control Rules.
Angela held a postdoctoral research position with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, where she researched remediation methods for water contaminated by uranium mining. She 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 desert sagebrush, or watching the sun set over the North Dakota badlands.
