Since November 2022, Loyle Campbell has been a research fellow in DGAP’s Center for Climate and Foreign Policy, where he assesses international climate and energy policy.
Before joining DGAP, Campbell completed a foreign policy fellowship at the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars and served as a Harold W. Rosenthal Fellow on the United States House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. At the same time, he worked with a research team at the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei to assess how China, Europe, and the United States compete for leadership over the global energy transition.
Campbell has also actively contributed to youth climate leadership. For example, in 2021, he served as a speaker at the 16th United Nations Conference of the Youth in Glasgow and the European Youth Event in Strasbourg. In 2022, he participated in the International Renewable Energy Agency’s Student Leader Program.
Before living in Europe, he worked in various positions at a Canadian oil field from 2011 to 2017. He applies his experience in this sector to advocate for an inclusive and just energy transition.
Campbell earned a master’s degree in international energy with a focus on global decarbonization and Asian studies at the Sciences Po Paris School of International Affairs in France. Before that, he completed a Bachelor of Science in political science at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Ghent University in Belgium.
