Co-Director of Energy Futures Lab and Professor of Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London, UK
Professor Korre joined Imperial in 1993 as a Marie Sklodowska Curie Research Fellow, having completed her BSc in Geology at the University of Athens. She became Energy Futures Lab’s Co-Director in September 2018. EFL is the College’s energy institute, established in 2005 to address global energy challenges by identifying and leading new opportunities to serve industry, government and society at large. Anna also heads the Minerals Energy and Environmental Engineering Research Group, developing engineering solutions to the supply of clean energy, the sustainable production of natural resources, and mitigating environmental impacts and risks. Her research focus is in the areas of modelling risk and uncertainty and the environmental and life cycle assessment of engineering systems. She has led and participated in numerous industry, UKRI, BEIS, The Crown Estate and EU funded projects developing engineering tools to assess the impacts of the minerals and energy industries in terms of operational performance, environmental footprint and cost.
