Kathleen Sellers, PE, leads multidisciplinary consulting teams at ERM that help global companies to meet their business goals through effective product stewardship and sustainability. She brings that perspective to students in her class at Indiana University. Her classes also reflect the perspective that she’s gained through writing on environmental issues. Her books, most recently “Product Stewardship, Life Cycle Analysis and the Environment” (2015) and “Emerging Contaminants: Anticipating Developments” (2020) have explored the challenges of recognizing and responding appropriately to emerging environmental issues relating to chemicals and nanomaterials. Kate has used the content of her books to generate broader conversations through teaching courses at Tufts University, Indiana University, and Harvard University Extension School. She is a founding Board member of the Product Stewardship Society and served as President from 2017 to 2019. Kate earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Indiana University and a Master of Science degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Massachusetts.
