Junior Target Analyst CDP

Target Validation

Rochelle Maher is a Science-Based Targets Analyst with CDP in London, conducting in-depth assessments of corporate emissions reduction targets to ensure they align with the latest climate science.

Rochelle has completed her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of British Columbia, with Combined Honours in Physics and Mathematics.

To mitigate impacts of climate change on the environment and at-risk populations, she wants to use her skills in physics and mathematics to do research regarding the climate crisis in order to inform policy-making and corporate climate action.

The majority of her research projects thus far have focused on air quality: evaluating the odour impact of cannabis cultivation facilities in Vancouver, identifying the mixing layer height in Toronto to improve greenhouse gas emissions estimations, and predicting wildfires in the British Columbia region based on species-specific responses to drought.
