Lindsey may have played field hockey on a team called the Oilers, but since moving away from Huntington Beach, California, she’s worked consistently to study and promote clean energy.

Lindsey is the Director of International Policy for Third Way’s Climate and Energy Program and co-founder of Third Way’s Carbon-Free Europe initiative, which provides research and advocacy for technology-inclusive climate policies across Europe. She oversees Third Way’s energy systems analysis and transatlantic portfolios, developing and promoting policies that rapidly deploy existing solutions and invest in the next generation of technologies needed to get all the way to net-zero.

In a previous role at Third Way, Lindsey was on the leadership team of the Decarb America Research Initiative, an effort to analyze policy and technology pathways for the U.S. to decarbonize while highlighting the state-level economic and jobs opportunities of the clean energy transition.

Prior to Third Way, Lindsey worked at the Center on Global Energy Policy researching the geopolitics of clean energy. She also led a project for the New York City Mayor’s Office analyzing the impact of NYC’s climate policies on the energy cost burden for different demographics. Lindsey began her career in climate science and policy working at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, making complex concepts accessible to a larger audience with their Education and Outreach Division.

Lindsey earned her MPA in Environmental Science and Policy and her BA in Sustainable Development from Columbia University. She was a Fulbright Research Scholar at the Heidelberg Center for the Environment in Germany.

When she’s not working, Lindsey enjoys cooking, re-watching episodes of Arrested Development, and figuring out public transportation in new places without internet access.
