Mary Kate Mitchell Lane
Ph.D Student, Chemical & Environmental Engineering
Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from Michigan Technological University
Mary Kate Mitchell Lane is a PhD graduate student in Yale’s Chemical and Environmental Engineering department. During her first year in Dr. Julie Zimmerman’s Green Engineering research group, Mary Kate successfully completed a project investigating the use of supercritical carbon dioxide and a heterogeneous catalyst as a greener process to produce biodiesel from oil feedstocks. She became a member of the Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel as well as a recipient of the Beth Calabotta Sustainability Education Grant for her biodiesel research. Her current research uses her knowledge of supercritical fluids as a green solvent applied to nanoparticle synthesis. Mary Kate is also a NSF GRFP fellow (National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship).
