Shaun is an Ex Officio member of the Advisory Board and the President of Student Energy Durham. He leads an executive team of 5 students, organising talks and debates at Durham University. The society tries to promote a non-biased view of the energy industry and wants to promote the industry to students across a range of subjects, creating an environment to develop students’ understanding of the sector. The society keeps in regular contact with Student Energy, the non-profit organisation that organises the International Student Energy Summit's, as it is their only UK based Chapter.
Shaun is in his 2nd year of Geography, directing his module choices to learn about politics, economics and development. He finds the global energy transition very interesting, particularly the geo-politics involved, and has developed a fascination with the relationship between development and energy. He hopes to pursue a career within the energy industry and contribute towards a low-carbon future.
