Dr Sarah Grundy

Senior Lecturer
Engineering
School of Chemical Engineering

Dr Grundy's research focus in in engineering education and current trends in industry. Her passion includes sustainable manufacturing and design from raw materials to process and product improvement and/or development.

After completing her PhD in Chemical Engineering from UNSW (2004), Dr Grundy joined a global building manufacturing company and became a Senior Technical Leader within the Research and Development division of the company. After 15 years in industry, Dr Grundy is at UNSW as an Education Focussed academic, predominantly responsible for Engineering design courses.
