He is a specialist in sustainable development, renewables and energy with over 10 years experience working in the area including over 5 years at WSP’s Sustainable Places Team. He is a leading consultant and analyst with an excellent ability to undertake research, coordinate others, understand data and present them in a format that is rigorous and easy to understand.
What are your main responsibilities?
My main responsible for leading our decarbonisation work and helping clients find a realistic pathway to net zero. This includes a wider range of sustainability, social, practical and at times political considerations.
What’s the best part of your job?
Working with clients who are equally passionate about sustainability and working together to find solutions. Similarly, I love seeing how the industry has evolved over the years and trying to predict how priorities and narratives evolve.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was younger, I wanted to be a teacher (it’s something I might still end up doing at some point). Teaching is something I’ve always found rewarding and whenever I’ve had the opportunity to volunteer at schools (usually on the subject of sustainability) I leave feeling revitalised.
