I am a senior consultant in Arup’s Advisory team specialising in systems-based thinking, resource flow analysis and circular business models. I have wide-ranging experience advising suppliers, developers and cities on how they can incorporate and benefit from the principles of the circular economy. My collaborative, evidence-based and value-driven approach ensure strategic circular economy business model interventions are identified for organisations. I currently lead Arup’s internal circular economy network where I am responsible for knowledge sharing and technical excellence across all Arup offices and disciplines.
I work with several of Arup’s strategic partners including the Ellen MacArthur Foundation on thought leadership and C40 Cities under the climate action planning programme in Southeast Asia. Before focussing on circular economy, I worked in sustainable resource and waste management including infrastructure development and strategy projects in the UK, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia. I have a Masters in Chemical Engineering and am a Chartered Waste Manager.
