BAS Honorary Fellow
Senior Research Associate, University of Oxford
Edward’s research relates to the socio-economic impacts of critical national infrastructure failure due to space weather. Having worked with BAS researchers since 2015, he has undertaken risk assessment studies for both the UK and the USA, focusing on electricity transmission infrastructure failure due to geomagnetic disturbances. This work has been utilised by both the insurance industry and governments to help improve understanding on the socio-economic impacts of space weather.
Edward has worked on a variety of space weather projects which have received international recognition, including collaborations with AIG, the UK Met Office, Airbus Defence and Space, and the Canadian Space Agency. He has given key note speeches at European Space Weather Week (2016), the Japanese Solar Terrestrial Prediction conference (PSTEP) (2017) and invited presentations at the US Space Weather Workshop (2017) and the Royal Astronomical Society (2018).
Edward is currently a Senior Research Associate at the University of Oxford, an Adjunct Assistant Professor in Engineering & Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University and a Visiting Associate in Operations & Technology Management at the Cambridge Judge Business School. In 2017 he was nominated by the US Embassy for the International Visitors Leadership Program on critical national infrastructure. Edward holds an MPhil and PhD from the University of Cambridge.
