She has been driving her career towards fostering, developing, disseminating, implementing, and commercialising innovations in Green Chemistry and sustainable development, in order to reduce the carbon footprint of companies.
She has started cleaning the pollution resulting from industrial processes, and then moved upstream, developing sustainable processes, helping industries to avoid the pollution she used to clean up.
Thus, she has developed novel materials for remediation, for textile fabrics, and for building insulation, as well as new products for food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Her work has been done developing green technologies based on biomaterials, ionic liquids, nanoparticles, and super-critical fluids, targeting waste valorisation solutions, and using renewable resources such as algae.
She has an international experience, from lab to market and she had lot of success in fund raising activities as well, helping companies getting the funds they need to develop their innovations.
Inspirational leader, she is an expert in handling change management, strategy, operational excellence and most importantly employees’ engagement.
Today, she helps green tech innovators market their products and services, give them the right visibility, engage the public or get the proper funding. She also accompanies companies in managing sustainable change in the circular economy and energy transition revolution.
