Jaya Uppal

MBA/MS Candidate

I have a background in climate tech and politics. I come to Michigan from Seattle, where I worked in Business Development at LevelTen Energy, a clean energy startup that provides transaction infrastructure for renewable energy buyers and sellers. I’m passionate about accelerating the global clean energy transition while ensuring the transition happens in a way that’s just, equitable, and leaves no one behind.

I’m a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, where I lived in a small town in Sierra Leone and taught middle school math. My personal interests include ultimate frisbee, reading, hiking, meditation, and CrossFit.
