Olly joined Eunomia in early 2017 and applies his multidisciplinary understanding of environmental issues and strong analytical skills to a variety of projects.
Olly has contributed to the development of a model that quantifies the air quality benefits of Sustrans’ work in encouraging active travel through primary and secondary literature reviews. The literature reviews covered both infrastructure development and promotional activity. Olly is also part of the project team updating the Emissions Performance Standard for the Greater London Authority (GLA). He has compiled data on waste compositions from the different London boroughs that will inform the final report.
More recently, Olly has undertaken research work for the European Commission on a scoping study into the emission of microplastics, focusing on tyre wear and the pathways tyre dust takes into the marine environment.
Olly previously completed an internship within the Energy and Environment Team of Unite Students, a FTSE 250 student accommodation firm, during which he developed a data-collection tool to help build a detailed profile of their waste and recycling infrastructure.
Olly has a first-class BSc degree in Environmental Science from the University of Exeter. Alongside his third-year studies, in which he focused on climate change and the encouragement of sustainable diets to support mitigation of emissions, he organised a conference with the aim of creating a platform for students and staff to raise awareness of sustainability and social justice issues on campus and in the wider community.
