A Chemical Engineering Career for a Healthy and Sustainable Planet

Throughout Emily’s career in chemical engineering, she has worked on technologies that are key to ensuring a healthy and sustainable planet. Her doctoral thesis was related to the ozone hole over the Antarctic; her work at Xerox was related to reducing the energy required to produce prints; and her work at Hatch has been focused on new technologies that ensure clean water and minimize the impact of mining. Through it all, Emily has applied her technical training as well as other, important non-technical skills. Her talk will share lessons learned throughout her career.
