Researcher biography

Jake holds a joint position as the Tritium E-Mobility Fellow at the UQ Dow Centre for Sustainable Engineering Innovation & School of Civil Engineering.

With more than 10 years of experience working in the transport sector in Australia and Europe, Jake has led a number of high-profile transport projects, with a particular interest in the field of future mobility policy. He has worked with governments locally and abroad in preparing for the electrification of transport, and has also been involved in several publicly-funded transport research projects investigating future mobility trends, including consumer preferences towards shared, automated and electric vehicles.

Jake's current research includes understanding the potential of using electric vehicles as "batteries-on-wheels"; transition policy for the electrification of public transport; and investigation into how road pricing schemes could be used to generate sustainable transport funding, while supporting the uptake of new transport technologies, like electric vehicles.

In addition to his roles at UQ, Jake is a Lead Author for the Transport Chapter AR6 at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and is a member of the International Electric Vehicle Policy Council, at the University of California, Davis.
