Bio

I am a recent Cambridge Chemical Engineering graduate who currently works for the consultancy arm of IHS Chemical in a small high performing team based in the heart of London. I have worked on projects ranging from: Leading a cost of production analysis for a clients integrated steam cracker and polyolefins complex against their potential competitors to advising a client on supply, demand and price trends in the plastic industry.

I am looking to gain a variety of petrochemical experiences, including in leading projects to build a solid base of experiences that I will be able to leverage as I progress through my career.

Analyst

IHS , United Kingdom
  • I support the consultancy team here in the London office to research, analyse and present the economic impacts and strategic implications we believe events and trends in the petrochemicals industry will have upon our clients. Such work is tailored specifically to our clients needs and product portfolios.
  • Work in close association with senior directors who have extensive experience of petrochemicals. Most of whom have had 10-20 years experience in senior positions within the chemical industry (e.g. BP, Shell, SABIC, legacy ICI). I have leveraged their experience and they have provided me with a great deal of insight and knowledge about the industry as a whole from both technical and economic perspectives.
  • Projects have ranged in scope from advising a well-known beverages client upon price trends in the plastics industry to providing a client with a complete analysis of events and trends likely to shape the entire Russian petrochemicals sector over the next twenty years.

  • Liaised with teachers and the board of governors to determine how the money raised could have maximum impact upon the academic performance of the school.
  • Negotiated with international and local book and laboratory wholesalers to secure the best price and right resources for the school. Developed a new library cataloguing system for the school to cope with this new influx of learning resources.
  • Examined strategies to improve the holistic education of the school, including creating running, science and juggling clubs and furthermore organising a sports day involving another school.
  • Was able to travel extensively in Uganda, including a brief individual excursion to Rwanda.
