I am a regional climate scientist working for the Met Office.

I completed my PhD in glaciology at the University of Bristol in 2013. I am also a trustee of the Centre for Sustainable Energy, a charity addressing the twin challenges of rising energy costs and climate change and a former editor of The Oil Drum, a popular weblog studying peak oil, energy security and wider limits to growth issues. I am a regular speaker on energy security. I also have a Level 3 VRQ Diploma in Cycle Maintenance and work with Taylored Cycles and volunteer with The Bristol Bike Project.

In the past I have worked on weather radar R&D and for Orange UK and France Telecom Group as a principal engineer specialising in radio network architecture and off-grid solar power solutions for telecoms infrastructure in the emerging market.

I have an undergraduate masters degree in computational physics from the University of York and an MSc in Earth system science from Bristol. I have also studied energy systems and at post graduate level, environmental decision making with the Open University.
