Aimee Titche

PhD Student

School of Engineering & Physical Sciences, Institute of Mechanical, Process & Energy Engineering, Heriot-Watt University, Riccarton, UK


Aimee received her Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Engineering from Yale University in May 2023 and was awarded Distinction in her major. During her time at Yale, she worked under Professor Noah Planavsky on enhanced weathering research, sparking her interest in CDR technologies. For her Environmental Engineering Senior Project, Aimee developed and tested a dissolved CO2 sensor for application in enhanced weathering research as a cost-effective measurement tool. This project, which was conducted in conjunction with CREW Carbon, inspired Aimee to want to further her research experience by completing her PhD so that she may have the opportunity to contribute more significantly to the realm of CDR technology. Her current project, supervised by Professor Phil Renforth and Dr James Campbell, is centered around the development and optimization of technologies for the recarbonation step in the lime cycling process.
