Sarah Dewey is a former postdoctoral research fellow with the Belfer Center’s Arctic Initiative. In June 2021, she joined the International Division of the Science Office at the U.S. Department of Energy as an AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow. She holds a PhD and MS in Oceanography from the University of Washington and a BS in Geology & Geophysics from Yale University, and her field experience centers on the use of aerial platforms to observe the western Arctic Ocean.

Dr. Dewey’s current research quantifies time and space scales of ice-ocean interaction and links them to the scope of environmental policy, strategic response, and mitigation of marine pollution. Besides her passion for fieldwork, a background in journalism and environmental education has fed Dr. Dewey’s interest in science education, outreach, and the connection between geophysical research and policy.
