Valeri is a PhD student in the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California Berkeley, and a Moore/Sloan Fellow at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science. Her research interests include the use of mathematical models to examine drivers of infectious diseases – particularly how environmental factors alter these drivers and exacerbate the economic impacts of climate change. Prior to graduate school, Valeri worked at the US Department of State, where she focussed on international climate policy. This included advising the mediation of negotiations amongst the 195 nations party to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in the development of the Paris Agreement.
