With a PhD in computer science specialising in ICT GHG emissions and a MBA in sustainability, I'm uniquely qualified as an experienced freelance sustainable ICT consultant and research scientist.
As you can see from the articles below, clients range from global IT companies such as Google and Microsoft, global leading computer eco-labels, national governments, plus numerous commercial, public and third sector organisations of all sizes.
As a Research Fellow with the University of Warwick, I am nominated for the Earth Shot Prize as my pioneering work has created new and scientifically validated methods and tools to measure and reduce the carbon footprint of computing in the workplace.
Delivering a level of accuracy not usually attainable, you can rest assured that by involving me, your sustainable ICT project will be validated by science, meet associated legislation and standards compliance and most importantly, be free from greenwash.
From smart phones to PCs to data centre and remote working GHG emissions, I'm one of very few qualified and experienced sustainable ICT consultants. Trusted by leading brands I bring credible science based consulting to your low carbon computing project. Why not hire me on an ad hoc or fixed term basis? Doing so ensures you create meaningful strategies and results that reduce the impact of ICT on the Planet and increase Profit by reducing utility consumption and hardware procurement cycles.
I am a Doctor of computer science specialising in the field of sustainable ICT. As a Research Fellow with the University of Warwick, I conduct empirical research to substantiate GHG emissions and operational cost reduction for products and services supplied to organisations that form part of their overall ICT focused ESG strategy. This can be on behalf of manufacturers (e.g. Google and Microsoft), for channel resellers and service providers or for customers directly.
Creating an ICT carbon footprint baseline is the first step towards forming abatement strategies. During my PhD research I invented the world's first application capable of profiling and calculating an organisation's ICT carbon footprint. To date, there is no other company or consultant capable of achieving this with any level of scientific validation. Projects can be achieved entirely online using web based applications or as a guided process or completed for you.
Comparing end user computing devices by carbon footprint before purchasing can reduce environmental impact by as much as 82%. During my PhD research I created the world's first and only application that enables IT, procurement and sustainability teams to do exactly this. If you are an ICT reseller replying to a tender that includes sustainability as a criterion or a business seeking low carbon footprint devices, you can use this service on an ad hoc basis or as an annual subscriber.
Why not deliver value to your green IT proposition and engage your customer or channel partner in a sustainable ICT workshop? I have 30 years of experience working directly with end users, IT brands and channel partners. The workshop can be a half or full day and will explore the benefits of low carbon computing for your client. You don't need to be an expert when you can hire a world leading PhD level consultant to deliver your unique sustainability proposition.
It's easy to be confused by sustainable ICT propositions. That's why I offer a range of knowledge transfer sessions to suit all budgets and roles. From an hour long online session supported by follow on tuition videos, to week long off site training camps, I am experienced in coaching you or your customer's management, IT, procurement, sales, marketing and technical teams to understand how sustainable ICT will drive GHG abatement, reduce costs and improve your organisation's success.
As a pioneer in the scientific field of sustainable ICT I have spoken across the world to all sizes and types of audiences. Booking me directly means your attendees hear from someone who is talking about first hand global impact research that is changing the world of green IT. Rather than hiring '3rd party' speakers quoting assumed works and offering misguided opinion. Prices range from a short, local (London and South East UK) / online session to national and international engagements.
Producing a scientifically validated impact case study elevates your sustainable IT success stories beyond conjecture to a reality that can withstand scrutiny and avoid any suggestion of greenwash. Avoiding assumption and inaccuracy, you can show your customers and employees that sustainable IT significantly reduces GHG emissions and costs. With assured science based credibility, you will create a sustainable IT impact case study that shows the world you are supporting climate action.
My media work ranges from bespoke magazine editorials for events such as COP that have been read by over 4 million people globally, to podcasts and social / newspaper articles. You can hire me to join the discussion online, in the studio or to create a thought leadership article for publishing. All engagements are charged on a time basis and the amount of input required will depend upon your focus and existing sustainable ICT strategy, offerings and messages.
