Dr Andrew Skelton
Research Associate, Centre for Risk Studies
Andrew Skelton is an affiliate of the Centre for Risk Studies and holds a research post at the Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR) in the Department of Land Economy at the University of Cambridge.
With the Centre for Risk Studies, Andrew is helping to develop a dataset of the world's largest enterprises that drive the global economy and their relationships with each other. Particular focus is being given to quantifying supply chain linkages across a network of multinational enterprises to gain insight into the potential impact of a cyber catastrophe scenario.
Andrew is also interested in the role played by major enterprises in driving (and mitigating) environmental impacts through indirect supply chain activities; work that falls at the intersection of economics, environmental science, international business and supply chain management. Previous research has included: the development of an approach for mapping and visualising flows of embodied greenhouse gas emissions through the global economy; the assessment of how different regions, industries and enterprises could mitigate emissions within their international supply chains; and, the development of a computational model for estimating the carbon footprint of a group of enterprises that removes double-counting caused by the presence of enterprises within each other's supply chains and deals with uncertainty introduced by incomplete information.
Andrew has an earlier background in product design and holds an MPhil in Engineering for Sustainable Development from the University of Cambridge and an MEng from the University of Durham.
