She has experience of climate policy analysis through working with the European Environment Agency, Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, UK and support to COP22 & 23. She has first-hand experience of core inventory compilation through working on the UK, Iceland, Ireland and Malta national GHG and AQ inventories. Katrina is a UNFCCC Expert Reviewer for the Energy sector and participated as an Energy (stationary) expert for the 2018 and 2019 NECD reviews of AQ inventories.

Katrina has managed projects quantifying and evaluating national mitigation policies, and supported countries with the reporting of their Policies and Measures (PaMs) to the EU under the Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (MMR) and the National Emissions Ceiling Directive (NECD). Katrina also has experience of assessing the wider impacts of mitigation and adaptation actions through co-benefit projects with Guyana and Jersey. Katrina has been technical lead for numerous projects involving the visualisation of complex environmental data, including interactive pieces on NDCs, GHG inventories and PaMs, allowing the user to explore the data in a transparent and innovative manner.
