Natalie O’Neil, PhD
Natalie O’Neil is director of higher education at Beyond Benign. Natalie earned her PhD in chemistry from the University at Albany in 2017. During her graduate studies, she felt that the topics of sustainability, toxicology, and environmental hazards were missing from the traditional graduate chemistry curriculum. Therefore, she pursued a one-year certification in Green Chemistry and Chemical Stewardship and attended the American Chemical Society (ACS) Green Chemistry & Sustainable Energy Summer School. She now uses her teaching experience and her passion to empower the next generation of scientists to use sustainable approaches through green chemistry through the Beyond Benign Green Chemistry Commitment (GCC) program.
