Katie Beverley leads PDR’s Ecodesign Centre and has a keen interest in exploring how the social practices of users influence the sustainability of new technologies, products and services. Katie has worked with companies from a range of sectors including fashion, furniture, automotive and high technology (fuel cells and semiconductors) to explore how to combine products and services to meet user needs whilst benefitting the environment and society. She also advises Welsh Government on policy related to ecodesign and the circular economy.
When Katie is off-duty she can often be found at motor-racing circuits watching endurance racing and hoping not to bump into people she has worked with who may not be so impressed with her extra-curricular interests.
