The Brilliant ClubPosted on: 17/04/2018
On Tuesday 17th April, twelve students went to Royal Holloway University for the launch of The Brilliant Club, an award winning charity which mobilises the PhD community to share its academic expertise with state schools.
This programme aims to widen access for outstanding students to progress to the most selective universities in the UK. A post PhD researcher will deliver six workshops to students and students will complete a final dissertation style project on a given topic. Our students’ topic is climate change: “Climate has always been changing, so humans cannot possibly be responsible for the current climate change. Discuss.”
Nower Hill’s post PhD researcher is Nish, a Research Associate at the University College London (UCL) Energy Institute, Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources. He gained his PhD in Energy and Transport (Market failures and barriers affecting energy efficient operations in shipping) from UCL in 2014. Nish has a BSc in Management and an MSc in Energy, Trade & Finance, both from Cass Business School, City University.
Nish’s research has taken him to the UN and resulted in the shipping industry signing up to the Paris Agreement.
