About Me

My History

Through my career I have taken on a number of roles across different industries. In all of these I take a pragmatic, researched-based approach to finding out what has been working best in the scientific literature and then applying that to my own tasks.

The start of my academic career was at the University of Bath in Psychology and Communication Engineering, I ended up moving into Electrical Engineering and co-authoring a handful of publications on artificial intelligence, finally ending up with a Ph.D. in Quantifying Risks in Renewable Power Generation. At the same time I've gained insight into applying these skills in business and academia.

This included: copy-editing a course text for Power System Economics; working as a cameraman; helping teach media skills to various executives; leading the development of a startup; and as a scrum master (leadership/management of a software development team). More recently, my focus has shifted towards teaching people how to form positive habits, rapid acquire new skills, and achieve their goals.
