Sappi Technical CoE: Senior Chemical Technologist
- PhD Forestry and Wood Science
I am a registered Candidate Natural Scientist that works for Sappi, one of the biggest Pulp and Paper Producers in the World. I am involved in the day-to-day running of our labs, which includes equipment checks to ensure lab equipment is in good working condition (as I am ISO 17025 competent) and the results we generate are reliable and credible. We perform laboratory tests on the pulp produced at our various mills to determine the quality and performance. I am also involved in finding novel and new technology to improve the product we produce and existing processes. I am also involved in the collaborations with customers in the development of new products.
“I hope that one day I will be able to inspire a young women to end up enjoying science like I do.”
