Chloe Faehndrich

Position: Database Team

Chloe is a PhD candidate at UC Berkeley in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management. Chloe’s research is centered around land use change, water, and climate. She is interested in the impacts of agricultural expansion on surface water quality and availability. She is also interested in the release of greenhouse gases (GHG) from aquatic and terrestrial systems, and how changes in water quality and irrigation practices can influence emissions from these systems. Chloe utilizes geospatial technology in her research and has experience working in R, Python, ArcGIS, and Google Earth Engine. Before starting her PhD at UC Berkeley, Chloe studied at Skidmore College where she received degrees in Environmental Science and Spanish, and collaborated with The Soil Inventory Project (TSIP) to assess the climate change mitigation potential of regenerative farming. She also studied harmful algal blooms (HABs) in the Finger Lakes as a field technician for Cornell University’s Cayuga Lake HABs Monitoring Program. She also conducted research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory looking at GHG emissions from hydropower reservoirs and barriers to wind turbine implementation, respectively. As a new member of the Farm to School Evaluation Team, Chloe is working to streamline the data collection and analysis process to make program evaluation efforts more seamless.
