Biography

Kate Sellers, a Technical Director at the consultancy ERM, focuses her product stewardship work on identifying and managing risks. Those risks may be to businesses that depend on effective stewardship to sell products around the world, or, more fundamentally, risks to human health and the environment. Curiosity and a passion for exploring the consequences of society’s inventiveness led Ms. Sellers to co-author the book Nanotechnology and the Environment (CRC Press 2009) to explore the stewardship of nanomaterials. She recently completed her fourth book, Product Stewardship, Life Cycle Analysis, and the Environment (CRC Press 2015) which explores the mechanisms for and consequences of global chemical controls. She holds a MS in Environmental Engineering from the University of Massachusetts and a BS in Chemistry from Indiana University. Ms. Sellers is a licensed professional engineer and the President Elect of the Product Stewardship Society.
