Rachel Waugh’s PhD will explore credible scenarios for meeting the 2050 emission reduction targets for the steel and aluminium sector.

During her time as an Engineering undergraduate, Rachel’s interest in sustainability and low carbon technology provided her with several unique experiences, including participating in the final of the nPower Energy Challenge at Wembley Stadium, and embarking on a two-week expedition to Antarctica headed by the polar explorer Robert Swan, sponsored by BP Alternative Energy. Rachel is also involved with the charity ‘Engineers Without Borders’, acting as the co-ordinator of the Cambridge branch bursary team.
