Katlyn MacKay, MSc
A two time graduate of StFX hailing from Antigonish, Katlyn is now working as a research technician. Her MSc project focused on helping a large oil and gas company understand their emissions footprint, in great detail, using repeat mobile survey campaigns. This large site is now the best characterized in Canada, and emissions management experience on this site may guide us toward possible emission-saving measures that can be applied across the industry. Most recently, Katlyn has been helping a Canadian natural gas utility evaluate new leak detection strategies, through field studies and controlled release experiments. Katlyn intends to stay in the group and start a PhD in 2018.
