The start of his academic career was at the University of Bath in Psychology and Communication Engineering, later moving into Electrical Engineering and co-authoring a handful of publications on artificial intelligence, ending up with a Ph.D. in Quantifying Risks in Renewable Power Generation.

He gained insight into applying these skills in business and academia including: copy-editing course text for Power System Economics; working as a cameraman; helping teach media skills to various executives; and leading the development of a tech-startup.
