Current project
The project titled ‘Environmental Footprints of New Technologies’ is a collaboration between the department of Environmental Science at the Radboud University Nijmegen and the department of Climate, Air & Sustainability at TNO. Its focus is on better understanding the changes in environmental impact due to technology development. Topics to be covered are the quantification of environmental changes due to size scaling as well as technological learning, and new developments in alternative technologies and the background economy. The project is funded by the Dutch organisation for applied research (TNO) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Extracurricular activities and experiences
During the bachelor and master at the Radboud University, Mitchell has held a position in the board of the study association for molecular sciences (V.C.M.W. Sigma), the umbrella organization for study associations in Nijmegen (SOFv), the foundation for study tours for master students in molecular sciences (Stichting Buitenlandse Studiereizen) and the Nijmegen students for sustainability association (AGREEn). He was also involved in setting up the first edition of the orientation day for Dutch chemistry master programs (Carbon Masterdag) organized by the Royal Dutch Chemistry Association (KNCV). Additionally, he has been a mentor to freshmen and incoming Erasmus students during and after the Radboud orientation week and has given training in mentorship to other mentors.
