Victoria is a clean energy and sustainability specialist. She learned the intricacies of environmental science and policy while pursuing a B.S. in Earth Systems at Stanford University. She also completed a Ph.D. at UCLA during which she authored 12 peer-reviewed publications, won a university award for Outstanding Graduate Research, and received competitive grants from National Geographic, National Institutes of Health, and the National Science Foundation. During her dissertation fieldwork in rural Southeast Asia, Victoria fully recognized the intimate relationship between energy poverty and environmental degradation. As a result, she focused on applying her systems science background toward projects with immediate social and environmental impact. With Angaza, she has the opportunity to demonstrate that smart, scalable technology can greatly benefit both people and planet.
