Sibyl Diver, Ph.D., Lecturer, Earth Systems Program, Stanford University. I am an interdisciplinary environmental scientist, doing engaged research on Indigenous water governance in Pacific Rim salmon watersheds. At Stanford, I teach environmental governance and environmental justice.
I completed my PhD at the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management at UC Berkeley. I am trained in community-based participatory research and decolonizing methodologies. I also have a strong background with collaborative management in tribal fisheries and forestry. These speak to my broader research interests at the intersection of sustainability and social equity.
As part of my research, I partner with tribal managers at the Karuk Tribe Department of Natural Resources (California, US), and have also worked with members of the Xaxli’p Community Forest (British Columbia, Canada). I am also engaging in multiple collaborations involving Indigenous and allied scholars.
