Dr Katherine Collett
Dr Katherine Collett is interested in addressing the cross-disciplinary challenges associated with transitioning towards net-zero and the technical advances that will make this possible as well as offering a viable business case. Because of this, much of her research has partnered with industry and local authorities. Dr Collett has expertise in electric vehicle integration (including vehicle-to-grid) both within the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa, and has spent time researching a breadth of clean generation sources, such as wind power, nuclear fusion and solar. To understand net-zero systems more completely, Katherine has also spent time exploring the role of nature-based greenhouse gas removal, sustainable carbon feedstocks for products, alternative proteins for consumption, and green hydrogen production.
