Director of Low Carbon Economy, Transport Scotland
Stuart joined the Scottish Government in 2009, where he has led policy and reforms in the fields of Energy, Economic Development and the Environment. His current role places him at the centre of the Scottish Government's commitment to net zero carbon emission by 2045, one of Europe's most ambitious decarbonisation journeys, alongside an equally bold agenda to secure Scotland's place as global destination for innovation and investment in sustainable, zero emission mobility. Prior to joining the Government, Stuart worked in research and regulation, with an emphasis on contemporary environmental challenges and sustainability; a journey that took him from the valleys of Wales to the lakes of western Alaska. Stuart holds a PhD from the University of Southampton, a surfboard whenever he can, and is working toward a Masters in being a Dad.
