I graduated from Imperial College London with an MSc in Environmental Technology in 2003. Since then I have had a varied background in policy, social research and evaluation on a broad range of issues, but with a focus on energy and resource efficiency.
I worked at the Energy Saving Trust for 8 years (2003-2011) in a range of roles including programme management of energy efficiency and transport programmes, and more latterly research and evaluation.
Most recently I worked as research director at Databuild Consulting Ltd (2011-16) delivering research-based consultancy work for public sector clients including Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), DEFRA, Energy Saving Trust and others.
I was keen to further progress my research interests in an academic context, which is why I wished to join the LoLo CDT.
