I’m Amanda, a first-year PhD student in the department of Chemical Engineering at Columbia. Climate change and sustainability are passions of mine, and I’m hoping to work with Professor Alissa Park to contribute towards the field of carbon capture technologies. I recently completed my undergraduate studies at Imperial College London in June 2020, where I was awarded an MEng in Chemical Engineering. I enjoy volunteering during my spare time and have worked for organizations such as Save the Children and at hospitals as a Paediatrics society member. I also really enjoy traveling to new places, going to the cinema and trying new food.
