Geoff Maitland is Professor of Energy Engineering at Imperial College London. His career has spanned academia and industry, spending 20 years in oil and gas with Schlumberger and over 20 years at Imperial, first as a young lecturer and from 2005 in his current post. His work is centred on how we can continue to use fossil fuels for most of this century without causing catastrophic climate change.

Geoff was awarded the Hutchison Medal by the Institution of Chemical Engineers in 1998 and served as President of the British Society of Rheology from 2002-2005. In 2006 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. He was awarded the IChemE Chemical Engineering Envoy Award for 2010 for his media work explaining the engineering issues involved in the Gulf of Mexico oil-spill. He chaired the post-Macondo review of the UK Offshore Oil and Gas Regulatory Regime in 2010. Most recently Geoff has been appointed to the UK’s CCUS Cost Challenge Taskforce.
