AIM Programme Director
This is me in a few words
I joined BAS in September 2019 as UK Antarctic Infrastructure Programme Director, having previously served for almost 35 years in the Royal Air Force and in the aerospace industry. With a background in delivering complex projects, I am leading a programme of work that will deliver a New Polar Research Vessel, the Sir David Attenborough, and associated supporting infrastructure such as new wharves at Rothera in the British Antarctic Territory and at King Edward Point in South Georgia. I am also responsible for commissioning a new science operations building at Rothera, which marks the first stage in an on-going programme of work to provide modern, environmentally sustainable research and support facilities that will also reduce pressure on the Antarctic logistics and supply chain. In the coming years, I will help British Antarctic Survey acquire a new aircraft to sustain the airbridge to the continent from South America, develop options to conduct scientific research in East Antarctica, and work to further reduce dependence on fossil fuels through the delivery of a sustainable energy programme.
