Bob has worked with the UK’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), a cross Government policy unit working to position the UK as a global leader in the design, development, manufacture and deployment of zero emission vehicles and associated technologies.
OLEV comprises people from the Department for Transport and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to simplify policy development and speed up delivery of this important shared agenda.
By supporting the early market for electric and other zero emission vehicles, OLEV aims to secure the greatest possible industrial benefits for the UK from the inevitable transition to zero emission vehicles, decarbonise the UK’s vehicle fleet by 2050 and in doing so improve air quality and energy security. OLEV leads UK policy on regulations and standards that set road vehicle CO2 emissions performance targets for manufacturers.

He was awarded a Ph.D. in Biomechanical Engineering from Edinburgh University in 2002 having graduated from there with an Honours degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1997.
