- Senior Research Fellow in Sustainability Analysis
- Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Science
I am an Associate Professor in Sustainability Analysis at the Sustainable Environment Research Centre, University of South Wales. My research involves using a range of techniques, including Life Cycle Analysis, to determine the benefits, burdens and viability of new or emerging processes and products, particularly those associated with renewable energy and low fossil carbon materials such as biopolymers. I am particularly interested in evaluating how new or novel technologies can be integrated into existing industrial activities to deliver environmental benefit and economic sustainability. More information is available on my Pure profile via the link below.
Prior to the University I worked in the private sector for 10 years as an environmental consultant with business development responsibilities. This experience influences by current work in that I take a practical and pragmatic approach to modelling systems that have large uncertainties inherent within them, I communicate my work as clearly and openly as possible, and I still enjoy writing proposals and funding applications and developing new ideas and technologies.
I lecture on sustainability, environment and waste management related topics across a number of MSc courses and am part of the supervision team of a number of PhD students.
