This is me
My name is Dr Kate Round; I am an outreach presenter and tour guide for Dudley Museum Service
In the glass industry, my interests include the historical development of the industry in the Stourbridge district, how the geology and geography impacted on the wealth and sociology of the area, driven by the rivalries of our Glass Dynasties.
In my previous life, I was a research chemist and lecturer so understand the chemistry of glass having worked on the synthesis of ‘zeolites’ (silica based materials) with my work published in International Journals.
I have always lived in the Black Country and have a strong industrial family heritage, I have also been proud to serve my community as a local Magistrate for twenty years.
