Elizabeth Phillips

PhD Institution
University of Toronto

During her PhD, Elizabeth’s research focused on CFC contamination and degradation in the environment, extending the discipline of compound-specific isotope analysis in new directions to identify new enzymes with applications in cleaning up contaminated environments. As a Schmidt Science Fellow, she plans to pivot from environmental science to structural biology, focusing on unlocking hydrogenase catalysis to scale up biotechnology for large-scale sustainable hydrogen production.
