I am a senior consultant within Arup’s energy team in Edinburgh. I have extensive experience managing projects for various clients covering a broad range of energy technologies and systems. My background is in technology innovation and development for the energy industry, but my focus is now on the transition of the energy system and energy users to net zero.

I have recently focused on offshore renewable energy, including wind and wave and developing the hydrogen economy, with a particular focus on hydrogen for heat.

It has been hugely inspiring working in Scotland over the past decade, where the electricity system has largely decarbonised, seeing what shifts are achievable when industry works together while focusing on the strengths of a particular region. I look forward to being part of the next stage of Scotland’s journey and addressing the challenges that deep and widespread decarbonisation brings.
