Jacob joined T&E in March 2021 after working as a policy officer at the European associations for maritime and sea ports. There he dealt with legislation relating to the European Green Deal, energy and blue growth. He currently manages T&E's work on getting shipping included in the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).
Jacob studied history in Edinburgh, London and Mexico City, with a specialisation in the history of political thought. Hailing originally from London, he speaks English, Spanish and French, and is always keen to practice his German or Italian, ideally over some antipasti. Outside of work you can find him with a pint or two of Guinness, cycling, and talking literature with his two cats (not necessarily in that order).
