In this week’s episode, we welcome Dr. Christina Chang, Partner at Lowercarbon Capital, a venture capital dedicated to funding companies that are slashing C02 emissions, sucking carbon out of the sky, and buying us time to unf**k the planet.
As a Partner at Lowercarbon Capital, Dr. Chang incubates and invests in new technology startups with tremendous climate impact. From 2020 to 2022, Dr. Chang was a fellow at the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), within the U.S. Department of Energy, where she led several millions of dollars of funding for startups across manufacturing, from sustainable cement to rare earth extraction from mine tailings and has had her work featured in Physics Today and Forbes.
Dr. Chang has engaged global audiences on climate and sustainable energy technology innovation, speaking at the ARPA-E Innovation Summit, TEDx, and various chemistry conferences. She graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s in chemistry and Certificates in computer science, engineering biology, and materials science and engineering and has experience in techno-economics, R&D, and invention and patenting of clean energy technologies.
Outside of her passion for climate technology, Dr. Chang enjoys the outdoors and serves as a rock climbing and hiking leader in the MIT Outing Club, where she teaches environmental stewardship to students.
