I spent 32 years at Ricardo looking after gasoline ICE development and latterly development of Ricardo's strategy for electrification. Since leaving I have become passionate about adopting life-cycle analysis as the method to make informed technology choices and believe we will need a mixture of propulsion system solutions in order to meet our climate change and air quality imperatives. I am also trying to promote the use of renewable fuels as part of that solution, using motorsport as a beacon to educate the public that there other, complementary ways to do this. I also serve as a visiting professor at the University of Cardiff and am a member of the Industrial Advisor Network at the University of Nottingham, representing transport. I am chair of the Powertrain Systems and Fuels Group at the IMechE.

The acceptance of so many significant changes in technology have mainly been driven and brought about by the dedication of the LowCVP.
