DR AARON YEARDLEY

MEng, PhD

Associate Member of the Institution of Chemical Engineers

senior carbon reduction engineer

Aaron Yeardley is a Senior Carbon Reduction Engineer at Tunley Engineering. He specialises in carbon management planning and life cycle assessments.

Aaron has always had a passion for Mathematics and enjoys using this passion to help other people.

During his PhD, Aaron collaborated with many Chemical Engineering research students by using machine learning to aid process engineering projects through forecasting, sensitivity analysis and design of experiments. Aaron continues to use these data analytics and software skills to help decarbonise businesses.

It is clear that numbers make Aaron happy, and calculating a baseline value for a project’s greenhouse gas emissions and using innovative methods to decrease that baseline value is extremely exciting. 

NATALIE BAVIS

MSc, PGDE, PhD (pending)

carbon reduction engineer

Natalie is a newer member of the carbon team and is in the process of acquiring her PhD, “Modifying Hematite Photoanodes for Improved Photoelectrocatalytic Water-Splitting”, in Engineering.

With a background in chemistry, materials science and education, Natalie is passionate about using her skills to help businesses pursue sustainable practises. 

Her professional experience in teaching and creative nature inspires Natalie to make carbon reduction a goal that is accessible for all – regardless of your starting point.

Carbon Reduction clearly very much in the public eye but the subject isn’t well known by most people; Natalie’s experience in education helps ensure our customers can bring the whole team along with them as they start and progress through their carbon reduction journeys.

Natalie has 4 dogs and loves spending time with them outdoors. She enjoys running, gaming, and (for fear of being judged) birdwatching.

NATHAN WOOD

MChem, PhD (pending)

Carbon Reduction Engineer

Nathan is a Carbon Reduction Engineer at Tunley Engineering and is responsible for processing, analysing, and presenting carbon assessment data.

He combines this with finishing his PhD in “Modelling the Thermoelectric Properties of SrTiO3 and its (Nano-)composites” at the University of Huddersfield.

Nathan has an undergraduate background in Chemistry, with his PhD focusing on computational materials science. Thus far, he has published one paper investigating defect chemistry in SrTiO3, with several more planned. In his free time, Nathan likes to expand his knowledge by learning from others, reading, and researching anything he finds interesting.

This often translates into his work by allowing him to think of data differently, sometimes allowing for developing new R&D ideas.

DR WILLIAM BEER

PhD 

Chartered Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers

OUR CARBON REDUCTION ASSESSMENTS

THE FINEST TRADITIONS OF BRITISH ENGINEERING

Frank Tunley, Dr Will Beer’s great-grandfather, was a pattern maker for Laycock Engineering in Sheffield. From the 1920s until the 1960s, he worked on a wide range of power transmission and garage equipment products.

Frank was a proud craftsman, and his passion for engineering, precision and improvement continues to inspire us today.

Will and Peter have always been fascinated by engineering and design. For many years, they have repaired and re-built motorcycles and cars in their spare time, and they’re continually looking to create new designs that could improve the world.

To date they have registered over 14 patent applications that relate to a wide range of applications including kinetic energy recovery, venetian blind heat exchange and several relating to the motorcycle manufacturing industry. In addition, Will is a committed IMechE interviewer.
