Morgan focuses her energy on finding creative ways to collaboratively combat the planet’s most pressing problems through the power of chem-tech innovation. She began her career by founding a clean technology start-up based on her PhD research in polymer and materials chemistry bringing environmentally conscious processes to industrial oily wastewater separation.
Acknowledging the technical, business, and emotional challenges that go along with being a deep-tech founder, she expanded her career into the role of founding Director of Commercialization at Reaction (RXN) Hub to build systems to support chem-tech start-ups from bench through pilot to commercialization and beyond.
In alignment with her passion for collaboration and innovation, Morgan also built multiple initiatives focused on connecting individuals across academic, public, and private sectors in the chemical and entrepreneurial ecosystems to address issues such as under-representation of women in entrepreneurship and gaps in professional development and mentorship opportunities for science-based graduate students.
She currently sits as the Canadian delegate of the International Younger Chemists’ Network to continue this work across the globe.
