I am a Chartered Geologist with a first class degree from the University of Oxford and 13 years of oil industry experience, the majority of which has been with BP. I have worked on petroleum basins across the globe and at a range of scales, from Regional Exploration through to Field Development.
As a Geologist with significant knowledge about the evidence for climate change, I'm passionate about improving the sustainability of the energy sector and the need to decarbonise our energy supply. Therefore I'm trying to reposition my career to contribute towards this challenging objective, CCS is one of the areas I'm very interested as it's is a wonderful combination of my technical skills and desire to reduce the impact of carbon emissions.
I am about to embark on a year long leadership programme with 'On Purpose' (http://onpurpose.uk.com/), which trains leaders in social enterprise organisations that put purpose ahead of profit. I'm interested in how to create business models that facilitate positive change.
