Donnelley Post-Doctoral Fellow

BS (Environmental Chemistry) – Saint Vincent College, USA - 2018

PhD (Chemical Engineering) – Worcester Polytechnic Institute, USA - 2023

- Heather received her PhD studying the molecular degradation (and repolymerization) pathways of waste to energy in hydrothermal systems. Her work at Yale will focus on transferring these skills towards understanding the complexities of lignin valorization in continuous flow systems. Her research interests span the realm of sustainable waste utilization and using analytical techniques as puzzle pieces to reveal chemical mechanisms.

- Outside of the lab, Heather loves to play with her dog Stanley and go on walks on the Farmington Canal train. She also loves traveling and has been to over 30 countries!
