Meet Katharine “KC” Stover: Connecting climate solutions with people and policy

January 24, 2023

With Yi Chao back with a 2023 Seatrec Update!

Before diving into a new year of exciting ocean and water tech pioneers, host Tamara Kahn kicks off the new year, by checking in with past guest, Dr. Yi Chao of Seatrec.  One year since he’s been on the show and he’s been hard at work partnering up to make seabed exploration more possible.  Also in this episode, Tamara explores what kind of policy and support could accelerate these innovations, and why any of these matter at all.  Guest Katharine ‘KC’ Stover chats with Tamara about this as well as the work Hyphae Group is looking to do to connect the dots and further natural climate mitigation and adaptation solutions. Start local. Pick something you care about. And go for it!

Before diving into promoting the incredible innovations of the ocean and water industry, Tamara spent a decade ocean bound for weeks at a time, working with state-of-the-art geophysical sensors in some of the most challenging environments, the salty depths of the world’s oceans. She enjoyed managing projects with advanced technology and collaborating with a diverse workforce and clientele, but her international travels made her witness to some of the worst challenges facing humanity, from ocean pollution to water scarcity. She resolved to pivot her career into sustainability and ecological resilience. Since earning a Masters of Advanced Studies in Climate Science and Policy from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Tamara develops and facilitates programs that enable STEM students, researchers, policymakers, government officials and tech companies to form mutually beneficial partnerships, innovating and collaborating internationally towards sustainable solutions. She also holds a Bachelor of Science in Geological Sciences from the University of Texas at Austin and contributes technical knowledge along with expertise in strategic collaboration and a zest for innovative thinking. Tamara is most happy near a body of water, relishes any chance to SCUBA and loves learning new languages and cultures.
