Carly joined ASES as executive director in June, 2014. She is a renewable energy professional with a diverse background in solar, biofuels, education and wastewater management. She received her master of science degree in ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Colorado at Boulder where she researched microalgae for the production of bio-diesel and bio-ethanol. While studying in Boulder, Rixham served as director of arts and sciences at CU Energy, where she was instrumental in recruiting student involvement for events such as the Energy Frontiers conference. She has also taught biology and ecology at the university and high school levels. She also was a microbiologist at BioVantage Resources, culturing algae for bio-remediation of nutrients in wastewater. Prior to her renewable energy career, she worked in software development and customer support at Intuit.
Rixham served as a volunteer on several ASES membership and fundraising projects. She is passionate about nonprofit organizational development, and plans to take ASES into the next generation, reaffirming the organizations role as a leader in the renewable energy community. As solar energy gains success in the market place, Rixham is interested in pushing the solar agenda on a grassroots level. Dedicated to connecting science with the greater community of solar advocates, she is eager to support local chapters to help get real people involved in solar. She envisions a stronger connection with universities, as a way to recruit a new generation of professionals in renewable energy.
