Sallie Greenberg is the Sequestration Communications Coordinator for the Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS) and Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium (MGSC), one of the U.S. Department of Energy's seven regional sequestration partnerships. As the Assistant Director for the ISGS's Advanced Energy Technology Initiative, she helps lead a team of scientists working on several carbon capture and geologic sequestration projects, including the Illinois Basin — Decatur Project (IBDP). Sallie spearheaded the Class 1 — Non-hazardous UIC permit process for the IBDP and serves as the principal investigator for the Sequestration Training and Education Program (STEP), an organization dedicated to knowledge sharing to disseminate information and provide training for the emerging carbon sequestration industry.

Ms. Greenberg began her career as an isotope geochemist more than fifteen years ago. Her combined training as an environmental geologist and a geoscience educator provide a unique perspective on understanding public perception challenges related to carbon sequestration. Her research focuses on understanding social components of complex geological issues. Sallie holds a Master of Science degree in Geology from the University of Illinois and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geology from Alfred University in New York. She is currently working on a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Illinois.
