Dr Jack Kelly brings over 12 years’ experience applying machine learning to energy data. He holds a PhD in Disaggregation of Smart Meter Energy Data from Imperial College London. Before Open Climate Fix, Jack worked at Google DeepMind, where he was a Technical Lead for Google's internal wind power forecasting service. In 2019-2021, he consulted for NG-ESO as a Senior Data Scientist, where he worked on energy forecasting using state-of-the-art machine learning models. Jack is passionate about bringing research to life.
Dan Travers has 20 years’ experience in the energy and software industries. Originally working in the deregulated electricity markets in Australia and later consulting in the European market, he brings an in-depth understanding of energy markets and the value of improved information on expected supply and demand. After working for a decade in the Fintech space, in February 2018 Dan started a PhD in solar energy modelling and forecasting at the University of Sheffield. Dan is interested in the balance between commercial enterprise and research for public good.
Dr Peter Dudfield holds a PhD in fluid dynamics from the University of Cambridge. He has a passion for working with cutting-edge technologies to help fight climate change. Before working at Open Climate Fix, Peter worked with Habitat Energy and helped set up the largest UK battery optimisation portfolio. Peter also worked in the wind power sector with Siemens Gamesa, developing image recognition technology for damaged wind turbine blades. He has cycled around the world and likes getting the job done.
Jacob Bieker studied astrophysics and before Open Climate Fix worked at Google and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Jacob likes experimenting and pushing boundaries. He previously used machine learning to study the formation and evolution of galaxies and black holes using telescopes all around and outside of Earth. He also developed and ran state-of-the-art machine learning models to label petabytes of autonomous vehicle data at Scale.ai. In his free time you can find him hiking or sky watching.
Kasia Krasucka brings experience delivering complex projects testing innovative solutions in the Global South including in the space of renewable energy. This equipped her with a unique understanding of systems and design thinking to develop solutions that can scale and achieve tangible impact. She is passionate about new technologies and the role they play in tackling social and environmental challenges, particularly for the most vulnerable. Kasia is keen to put structure on things or to be ice skating.
Brad Fulford developed a love for creative problem-solving during a BSc in Architecture, designing to brief and budget; but this world didn't quite suit… so, these building blocks and user experiences became digital. He has since been integral to many projects, including as a founding member of a FabTech software startup. He has considerable experience in full-stack web software to get beautiful, functional things in front of our users. Based in Bristol, UK, he enjoys woodworking and sings in a contemporary choir.
Sol Cotton began tackling computational problems and handling large datasets working with data from CERN during his MA in Physics. Since then he has gained coding experience across the stack, with industrial roles focussed on architecting, building, and deploying business domains and their services. The increasing prevalence and severity of the ill effects of an ever worsening climate led him to a search for a proactive application of these developed skills. He loves a walk in a good landscape and wants to help ensure that there remains any to be enjoyed!
