Benedict joined Sancroft after completing an MSc in Sustainable Cities from King’s College London. Here he took an interest in the interaction between academia and policymaking before undertaking his own research focusing on sparking growth in the electric vehicle market through car scrappage policy. While studying, he interned at a large renewable energy trade association to help produce a report into future decarbonisation options for UK road transport; namely, hydrogen fuel cells, electric vehicles and biofuels. Prior to this, he completed his undergraduate degree in Geography from Loughborough University, enjoying the University’s connection to the Globalisation and World Cities Research Centre.
In his free time, Benedict volunteers at a charity community cafe and is often involved in amateur dramatics productions.
