The following was sent out from The Washington Post’s climate and environment editor Zachary Goldfarb, climate and environment deputy editor Juliet Eilperin and climate solutions editor Dayana Sarkisova:

We are delighted to announce that Allyson Chiu will join the Climate & Environment department as a Climate Solutions reporter, helming our coverage of the people and organizations working to address climate change and other environmental issues.

In this role, Allyson will explore the most innovative work being done to avert catastrophe and help readers understand what they can do in their own lives to protect the planet.

Allyson came to The Post as a Local intern in January 2018, then joined the Morning Mix team later that year. After spending more than two years on the overnight team — during which she produced a variety of viral stories that covered politics, sports, pop culture, science and marine mammals — Allyson moved to Features to become The Post’s first full-time wellness reporter in August 2020.

Throughout her time at The Post, Allyson has demonstrated a continued interest in reporting on the environment and climate change, most recently writing a story about the evidence linking air pollution exposure to covid-19 risks.

Allyson was born and raised in Guam. She graduated from Northwestern in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism.

Please join us in congratulating Allyson on her new role. She begins July 11.
