Alasdair Fennell


Alasdair is a project specialist who combines his technical background in physics with an enthusiasm for research and stakeholder engagement to deliver resources that support transformative outcomes.

While completing a Masters in Experimental Physics at the University of St Andrews, he adapted existing deep learning techniques for use in imaging and photonics experiments. This multidisciplinary work encouraged strong report-writing and research skills.

His final project combined previous knowledge of image processing with new work in the construction of neural networks – an area with strong links to smart technology. Throughout his undergraduate degree, he maintained a particular interest in physics breakthroughs and their implementation in the field of clean energy generation.

He works on projects with a strong data or innovation theme. This has ranged from the development of Smart towns and villages, to modelling renewable energy generation and understanding diverse technologies such as photonics, rockets and drones.
