Judy Xie is a doctoral student at Imperial College London’s Centre for Environmental Policy and the Centre for Process Systems Engineering. She is working on socially equitable pathways towards net zero. She is funded by the President’s PhD Scholarship. As part of the CleanFaB Research Group, she is supervised by Professor Niall Mac Dowell and Dr. Piera Patrizio.

Prior to Imperial College, Judy worked as a Research Chemist at Global Thermostat, an Atlanta-based direct air capture startup. She holds a BS (highest honors) in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA in the United States. During undergrad, Judy researched topics in heterogeneous catalysis under the advisement of Professor Chris Jones and spent a summer interning at the Paul Scherrer Institut in Villigen, Switzerland.
