Back to all staff

Kate Allcock grew up in Manchester, England and moved to the US in 2012. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and Policy from the University of Maryland in 2018 and her Master’s degree in Marine Science in 2021 from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. After finishing graduate school, she pursued a Research Assistant position at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. In 2022 she accepted an ORISE Fellowship in EPA’s Ocean Dumping Management Program, where she worked on a variety of projects to protect marine ecosystems throughout the United States and assisted in the ongoing development of EPA’s first carbon-dioxide removal permit. She brings a diverse background in basic and applied research, laboratory experience, and intergovernmental relations, and is excited to use these skills to further protect Chesapeake Bay ecosystems as a Life Scientist in the Chesapeake Bay Program Office. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, rock climbing, and cooking.
