During my undergraduate degree in Business and Management at the University of Exeter's Streatham Campus, I developed an interest in the role that private enterprise takes in shaping the world for future generations. This prompted my move to Exeter's Tremough campus in Cornwall where I undertook a Masters in Energy Policy. Here I became passionate about understanding the intricacies of energy systems; specifically relating to how to create a lasting change to a secure, affordable, and environmentally-sustainable system, and how the transition will impact society. I am now carrying out doctoral research as part of the IGov project, examining the impact of governance on innovation in energy systems, and how this affects affordability.
