Isaac graduated from the University of Bath with a BSc in Natural Sciences (Physics with Chemistry), in which he undertook a year-long placement at Shell Global Solutions as an Electric Mobility intern. For his final year project, Isaac developed a model to predict financial crashes by utilising the self-exciting nature of a financial market, a technique that is used to predict earthquakes and their aftershocks. During his time at Shell, Isaac worked on many projects surrounding electric vehicles and charging infrastructure, including research into smart charging and discharging profiles to reduce battery degradation during DC fast charging, analysing data for the Wireless Charging of Electric Taxis (WiCET) Project, and the creation and management of an electric vehicle database. He also gained considerable expertise in the ISO 15118 charging communication standard, its “Plug and Charge” feature, and the related ecosystem. Outside of university, Isaac is an avid drummer and enjoys powerlifting, swimming, tennis and running.

McLaren Applied Powertrain Webinar Attendee

I attended the McLaren applied powertrain webinar where innovation in power electronics for next-generation powertrains was presented. The main focus of the webinar was surrounding the potential benefits of using Silicon Carbide (SiC) devices in vehicles.

University of Bath, Mechanical Engineering Design and Project Exhibition - Cohort 2 Presentation

"AAPS CDT Presents: The 2030 Novus - Spiritual Successor To The Prius"

During the MRes year of the programme, the cohort were inspired by the impact of the Toyota Prius, and developed an architecture for a sustainable vehicle targeted at the market of 2030. Projecting forward using current and anticipated global trends, the transdisciplinary team explored a variety of opportunities for innovation and, using a holistic systems-engineering approach, developed a crossover plug-in hybrid vehicle.

UK Pool Electricity Market Presentation

I gave a presentation to a group of industry experts on the history and key learnings from the UK Pool market in the 1990s. This was part of a wider FCO sponsored project to take the key findings from the UK's experience with electricity markets and use these to help China build a more efficient market structure.
