SpecialityCamborne School of Mines - Research Fellow

Kate Taylor Smith is a Research Fellow for the EU Horizon-2020 funded GREENPEG project at Camborne School of Mines (CSM), University of Exeter. Kate has over 20 years’ experience working in research and education in academia in the UK and Iceland, covering three main themes: environmental and social best practice in mineral exploration, natural and man-made hazard and risk (assessment, perception, communication), and physical volcanology (explosive volcanism, outburst flooding, sedimentology and geomorphology of glacial and volcanic environments).

Since 2017 Kate has been based at CSM in project management and research roles within several critical raw materials projects. Kate’s recent research has focussed on exploration, in particular ESG best practice guidance and frameworks, radiation risk and public perceptions of both exploration and mining in Europe. Kate has also co-directed two films about the UN Resource Management System and led development of the ‘Technology Metals for a Green Future’ MOOC.
