Peter Schultz has 20 years of experience in climate and global change research, management, decision support, and communication. At ICF, he analyzes the impacts of climate change on a broad array of sectors, and helps clients prepare for the threats and opportunities presented by climate change. His ongoing work addresses many topics, including transportation, health, electricity production, mining, park and military facilities, and global economics.
Dr. Schultz played a leadership role in the interagency program responsible for integrating federal climate science. His prior research has been in the fields of climate and carbon cycle modeling, the economics of climate change, and remote sensing of vegetation. His expertise in informal education and communication stems from his work on climate change exhibitions and other communication modalities. He has led or contributed to the framing and development of dozens of global change assessments at the National Research Council, U.S. Global Change Research Program, and ICF.
Dr. Schultz currently manages ICF's support to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in assessing the vulnerability of older adults in the United States to climate change. He leads numerous other ICF efforts, including support to estimate the integrated impacts of climate change on electricity supply and demand; support of the development and improvement of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) guidance documents on vulnerability and adaptation to climate change; and ICF's involvement in the development of a new climate change exhibit for the Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences.
Dr. Schultz has a Ph.D. and an M.S. in Geosciences from Pennsylvania State University and a B.S. in Geology from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
