Matt Rooney: Engineering Policy Adviser, IMechE
After spending six years working as a mechanical engineering at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, he returned to study at the University of Cambridge where he researched strategies for bringing down the cost of new energy technologies, with a particular focus on carbon capture and storage and small modular reactors. Following this, he spent 18 months as a Research Fellow at the think tank Policy Exchange in Westminster before finally joining the IMechE in 2018. He is a fully chartered member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
