Personal profile

Biography

Dr Katrien Steenmans is a Lecturer in Law at Coventry University. She was previously a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at The Dickson Poon School of Law, King's College London, exploring the regulatory and policy frameworks that can enable public-private finance flows for climate change mitigation and adaptation projects. Her doctoral research investigated the role of regulations, policies, and property rights in enabling waste exchanges between organisations. She is continuing research within waste law, and is in particular focused on the implications of different property rights in waste, and how blockchain technologies can be used to underpin and support waste regulations and policies. 

Dr Steenmans has worked for the Urban Land Institute on climate change implications for real estate portfolio allocation, and on comparing housing affordability across European cities. She has also produced a report for the Civil Justice Council on civil justice issues. At University College London’s Department for Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy her research focused on barriers to climate action for cities, knowledge production and management within the urban governance context, and the governability of infrastructure resilience and fragility in cities.
