WYATT LUNDY, Research Director


Wyatt Lundy is the Research Director at the California Foundation on the Environment and the Economy (CFEE) where he is responsible for the policy content of the Foundation’s roundtable dialogues, multi-party workshops, and international study travel projects. At these forums, CFEE convenes policymakers and subject matter experts to examine the issues of energy, housing, telecommunications and technologies, transportation, and water.


Wyatt works with CFEE Board Members, the President & CEO, and policymakers to develop agendas, briefing materials,

and other policy documents that support CFEE’s mission of non-partisan engagement and education of state leaders – a

group that includes California State Legislators, regulators, administration officials as well as the Foundation’s coalition of

labor, environmental, business, and local government leaders. Wyatt also staffs the CFEE Board and its governance

committees as they oversee the Foundation’s affairs and its budget.

His previous experience includes working for the Mayor's Office of Los Angeles as well as managing researching projects

at the University of Southern California and the California Foundation for Commerce and Education. He joined CFEE to

support their mission of facilitating informed dialogue between key state leaders as they deliberate on policies and

projects with long-term environmental and economic impacts for the state of California.

As the son of park rangers, Wyatt grew up in National Parks in Arizona, Utah, and Oregon. This upbringing shaped his

understanding for the need of smart stewardship of our shared resources to ensure that future generations can enjoy

our wild spaces and natural lands.

Wyatt is a Phi Beta Kappa alumnus of the University of Michigan where he received a B.A. in History with High Distinction.

He later earned his Master of Public Policy from the University of Southern California, graduating as a Dean’s Merit Scholar

and a Phi Kappa Phi inductee.
