Katie is a Research Associate for the Chemical & Biological Engineering (CBE) Department at The University of Sheffield. Katie started her role in 2021 and is working with the Centre and the Styring group to develop evidence-based policies for the implementation of a circular economy in the chemicals manufacturing industries. Using her knowledge of carbon dioxide and green chemistry, Katie will focus on evaluating the performance of competing technology pathways and devise new evidence-based policy instruments to stimulate supply, demand and investment in sustainable chemicals. Katie has a strong background in chemistry, in particular green and carbon dioxide chemistry, completing her PhD in Green Chemistry at the University of York in 2017. Katie’s PhD research consisted of developing novel and sustainable carbon dioxide utilization and carbon capture and storage methodologies. From 2018 to 2020, Katie was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence of the University of York, researching the development of sustainable catalysts for cyclic carbonate synthesis, in collaboration with researchers at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Katie then spent a short time from 2020-2021 working as a Technician for the Central Teaching Laboratories at the University of Liverpool.
