BioDr. Sibyl Diver is an interdisciplinary environmental scientist, a lecturer at Stanford University in the Earth Systems Program, and co-lead for the Stanford Environmental Justice Working Group. She does community-engaged research on Indigenous water governance, focusing on Pacific Northwest salmon watersheds. This includes research on co-management (or collaborative management) arrangements between Indigenous communities and state agencies. She received her PhD from Berkeley's Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, where she helped build the Karuk-UC Berkeley Collaborative, a group supporting the Karuk Tribe's eco-cultural revitalization strategy in Northern California.
For two decades, Sibyl has worked in partnership with community leaders on issues of Indigenous peoples and salmon around the North Pacific – in the Russian Far East, Alaska, Canada and the US. Previous to graduate school, she spent eight years doing international conservation work and facilitating international exchanges with community leaders as a Russian translator -- an experience that introduced her to the deep connections between salmon conservation and Indigenous peoples. She completed her undergraduate work at Stanford, earning a dual degree in Human Biology and Russian.

Senior Lecturer, Earth Systems Program
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI study drivers of past climate change on millennial to million-year timescales using natural archives that preserve records of climate-related information. My most recent work has focused on the impacts of prehistoric human activities on the Earth's carbon cycle and the impacts of these activities on atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.
