As the Clean Buildings Manager, Tom works to shape state and local policy around building decarbonization, electrification and efficiency in Wisconsin. Tom recently received a Master of Public Affairs and a Master of Science in Environmental Science from Indiana University. In their studies, they focused on environmental justice and sustainable development.
During his studies, Tom held positions at the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation and at a Portuguese conservation nonprofit called Liga Para a Protecção da Natureza. Prior to attaining their degree, Tom worked as a Patent Examiner, a construction estimator, and a Peace Corps volunteer in Cambodia. Tom is looking forward to working with communities across Wisconsin to better the climate impact and energy consumption of the built environment.
Favorite things to do outdoors in Wisconsin: Tom is new to Wisconsin but is looking forward to cross-country skiing and long runs.
