Kathryn Woolley

Senior Air Quality Consultant
SLR Consulting

Growing up with severely asthmatic siblings gave me an early understanding of air quality and its impacts.I studied Environmental Science BSc (Hons) at the University of Plymouth, focusing all of my optional research projects on air quality. This included a research trip to China in my second year a collaboration with Sun Yat-Sen University and City U on the issue of trans-boundary particulate matter in Hong Kong & Guangzhou.Following the completion of my degree, I joined Ramboll as a graduate air quality consultant where I learned to apply my university understanding to a commercial product. I moved onto Hilson Moran, progressing with added responsibility and support to senior. I Joined SLR consulting in July 2017 where I’m continuing my development.  I’m passionate about air quality and although the health impacts have been known for decades, air quality has never had such a prevalent media presence. Site suitability is a very important aspect of Air Quality that I’m particularly interested in, as it ensures new development avoid introducing new residents into locations with poor air quality. Early positive engagement with the project team allows me to ensure consideration of air quality in the design process and enables measures not only to reduce exposure but consider the wider impact of the scheme.
