Dr. Stephanie Nitopi Karris
Carbon Technology Strategist, Carbon Direct
Dr. Karris completed a PhD in Chemical Engineering at Stanford University studying how to convert carbon dioxide into valuable products such as fuels and chemicals with the aid of electricity. This work has led to key insights that will help guide the continued development of catalyst materials and reactor systems that can effectively recycle carbon emissions into useful products. After graduate school, Dr. Karris founded and managed her own carbontech consulting firm CarbonSNK LLC. She also brings a diverse skillset and perspectives from her stints in R&D and procurement/finance with Fortune 500 pharmaceutical and energy companies. Dr. Karris received her BS in Chemical Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University.
