Graham began his career in 1987 as a researcher in Remote Sensing and GIS at the University of London. He then went on to spend nearly 30 years in the oil and gas industry, developing market intelligence and modelling tools for the upstream sector, working with colleagues and clients across the globe.
In 2020 Graham decided to leave the corporate world and return to research, embarking on a part-time PhD based at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge. He is focused on the application of high-resolution satellite imagery to monitor oil spills in the Russian sub-Arctic.
Graham also undertakes consulting projects, assisting start-ups to develop analytical tools for the energy and resource sector. Typically, support is focused on product strategy, data sourcing and broader business development activities.
