Dan is a multi-disciplinary PhD student in climate change and renewable energy at the Centre for Environmental Policy (CEP).
Dan is currently project managing the Greening Imperial - Sustainability and Action on Climate Change scoping study.
Before starting his PhD research, Dan has worked in sustainability and energy consulting at both Arup, and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. Dan is also proactively involved in outreach and educational engagement, including IntoUniversity and ‘Systainable Thinking’.
He holds degrees in Geography (BSc) and Environmental Technology (MSc) and is currently on an NERC funded studentship on the Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment.
Dan’s research focuses on the impact that climate change has on renewable energy systems, in particular how renewable energy resources and generation like wind and solar are effected by climate forcing. This research is being done under the supervision of Iain Staffell, Rob Gross (CEP, Imperial College London), and David Brayshaw (University of Reading).
