Biography

Dr. Stacia Dreyer is an environmental social scientist broadly interested in the human dimensions of environmental issues. As an Assistant Research Professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society, she works on projects related to the food-energy-water nexus, the human dimensions of renewable energy, and other environmental and sustainability issues. She received an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Environmental Psychology and Behavioral Economics with the Sustainability Solutions Initiative at the University of Maine in 2014. She completed her M.Ed. in Environmental Education from Western Washington University, where she became involved in the field of conservation and environmental psychology. Before earning her M.Ed., she served two terms as an AmeriCorps volunteer shortly after completing her B.A. in Psychology from Truman State University.

Stacia’s interdisciplinary scholarship and mentoring has received international, national, and local fellowships and awards.  As a 2012 Endeavour Research Fellow, she completed part of her dissertation research at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Western Australia and published her research on the Australian carbon pricing policy in Nature Climate Change. She was selected to be a Social Science Immersion Workshop Fellow at the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center from 2015-2016. In 2016, Stacia was awarded the UW Postdoc Mentoring Award for her exceptional mentoring of graduate students.
