Laura Feinstein focuses on energy policy, particularly natural gas infrastructure and energy decarbonization. She recently researched and wrote about innovative approaches to limiting natural gas pipeline expansion. A budding journalist in her youth, Feinstein is excited to dust off the cobwebs and write again on meaningful topics. Before joining Sightline, Feinstein worked as an engineer for Puget Sound Energy, modernizing the regional energy grid. She has a bachelor’s degree from Purdue University in electrical engineering and a master’s from the University of Washington in mathematics. A Seattlite for 20+ years, she enjoys many of the outdoor pursuits that the region has to offer: hiking, bicycling, skiing and drought-tolerant gardening.
