Katelin Opferkuch


Katelin is an Australian researcher who holds a Bachelor of Science majoring in both Environmental Health and Health and Safety. Seeking a broader international perspective, she then moved to the Netherlands after being accepted to complete her Master of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University. This two year research Master saw her refine her skills to specialise in the field of sustainable water management. During an internship with a large biotechnology company, Katelin was immersed in the fast-changing landscape of sustainability assessments.

Katelin is now a PhD candidate at Universidade Aberta in Lisbon, working within the Cresting project. Utilising skills gained from all of her previous experiences, the aim of Katelin's research is to develop a sustainability indicator system to assess and communicate Circular Economy practices at company level.
