Max Woollard

Max joins Nesta as an analyst in the sustainable future mission.

Max recently graduated from The Bartlett, UCL with an MSc in Smart Energy in The Built Environment. Here, he worked with the PACE research group and focused particularly on the behaviour of private energy assets under extreme conditions. This inspired him to continue working on energy consumption patterns and the factors that could affect them.

Prior to his MSc he worked as a co-ordinator for the Zoological Society of London for two years, responsible for managing customer relations, database management, and daily administration. This role followed the completion of a BSc in Environmental Sciences from the University of Leeds.

Outside of work Max is often competing with his local cricket team, enjoying historical documentaries or experimenting with new recipes.
