About the speaker:
I am incredibly passionate about the creation and implementation of planet-saving technology to both capture and remove carbon dioxide and mitigate the effects of climate change.Currently, I am co-founder and head of research at Heirloom, where we focus on developing and scaling the next generation of direct air capture for positive climate impact. Our goal is to remove 1 billion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by 2035.
I received my B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Colorado School of Mines in May 2018 and my PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in December 2021. During my PhD, I worked with Professor Jennifer Wilcox at both Worcester Polytechnic Institute and the University of Pennsylvania where my research surrounded carbon dioxide capture and removal with a focus on carbon mineralization technologies, direct air capture systems, and techno-economic analysis.
