His graduate studies focused on European oil and gas markets and energy diplomacy. He holds a visiting Researcher position at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies where he studied offshore wind, oil refining and commodity markets, natural gas conversion technologies, petrochemicals and gas-to-liquids.

Commenting on the appointment, Dan Pearson, RCG’s Chief Strategy Officer, said:
