Environmental Chemistry of Water, Sediment, Soil and Air: Early careers meeting

Join us for this one-day meeting on the Environmental Chemistry of Water, Sediment, Soil and Air for PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and early career scientists in industry.

You will have the opportunity to share your research in a supportive environment, network with fellow early career scientists, and hear about the career opportunities available to Environmental Chemists.

Keynote Speakers

Dr Laura Carter

Laura Carter is a University Academic Fellow in Soil Science at the University of Leeds. Laura’s research focuses on understanding the fate and uptake of emerging contaminants in the natural environment, with particular focus on soil-plant systems. Laura has recently been awarded a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship (£1.2M) to investigate the risks of emerging contaminants in agricultural systems, following land application of sludges and wastewater (e.g. pharmaceuticals, microplastics).

Antony Poveda

Antony originally studied Neuroscience at the University of Manchester. This was followed, eventually, by a Masters in Science Communication from UWE. He has been part of the team running the online STEM engagement project I’m a Scientist since 2015. In that time Antony has supported hundreds of scientists in taking part, helping early career researchers engage school students across the country whilst developing their own communication skills.
