Caitlin joined the Sustainability Team (Research) at King’s College London in August 2023. In her role as Sustainability Technician, Caitlin will spearhead the integration of sustainable practices into the university’s research activities, operations and infrastructure. Caitlin aims to secure funding for sustainability-focused proposals, ensuing that the most promising green projects receive the support they deserve, and most importantly explore emerging technologies, pushing the boundaries of what is possible, to discover novel ways of reducing King’s carbon footprint whilst maintaining the integrity of our research data. One of Caitlin’s key projects is to support facilities to engage with the Laboratory Efficiency Assessment Framework (LEAF).
