Some of my earliest childhood memories are of pulling apart my toys, understanding how they worked and trying to put them back together before anyone else realised. I believe this same curiosity (and ambition) led me to study engineering and has continued to open many doors that I would have otherwise never considered. Towards the end of my undergraduate degree, I was fortunate to travel abroad and study wind turbines with Siemens and Vestas (two of the world’s largest manufacturers). Over the following years, I have chosen to learn more about the interaction between the power sector and the environment. I have started to build my career forecasting the development of electricity markets with the express aim of tangibly contributing to their rapid decarbonisation. The Masters that I have now applied to study will further my understanding of the technologies that will govern this future and the targets needed to mitigate existential climate change.
