I joined the UK Government’s Department for Transport in the summer of 2021 and joined with Hannah Newell in a director job-share. Together we led on Transport Day at COP, and in December 2021, established the new Future Transport Systems and Environment directorate with a mission to create a sustainable transport future.

I previously spent 13 years in HM Treasury working in a range of roles, but with an emphasis on supply-side policies and new organizations, including leading the cross-Whitehall project for supporting strategic companies in response to COVID and setting up the new UK Infrastructure Bank. I also spent three years at UKGI on secondment, sitting on the board of HM Land Registry and setting up the new Geospatial Commission.
