Co-Founder - CEO
Lukky's got more than a decade of international banking experience with leading institutions, covering risk management, regulatory change, stress testing and consultancy. Never one to shy away from the big problems, he went into the rabbit hole of understanding how climate change would impact the world's financial stability, and some say he's still in there… somewhere.
Co-Founder - CPO
Econometrical wiz of the unquantifiable with 15 years' experience in stress testing, loss and valuation modelling at tier 1 global institutions. Kamil’s speciality is applying the latest tech and innovation to solve complex problems.
He’s also no stranger to backpacking, sailing and a good bottle of red - or a combination of all three!
Dr Claire Burke
Director of Science
Following a PhD in astrophysics, Claire turned her gaze Earthwards to bring cutting edge physics, big data and machine learning techniques to solving real-world problems. Claire has worked on climate change at the Met Office and been a conservation technology consultant for WWF and National Geographic.
She came from outer space to save the world from climate change!
VP of Sales
Francesca joins from AWS, Amazon’s cloud platform, where she worked in Strategic Global Partnerships, managing the relationship with the world’s leading supported open-source software provider, Red Hat.

Dr Laura Ramsamy
Senior Flood Scientist (Snr Associate)
Laura loves (nearly) all things water related including standing in rivers, scuba diving and sailing.
Also known as aqua(wo)man, she is finishing her PhD in Water Informatics and Engineering at the University of Exeter. She is happy to be joining a team where cheese is taken so seriously, and spends her time modelling floods and thinking about water.
Dr James Brennan
Remote Sensing & Data Science Lead
James brings years of experience applying remote sensing and data science to help solve some the key environmental challenges. During his PhD he worked with the European Space Agency on developing key climate data sets used to predict future carbon emissions.
When he’s not looking at pretty satellite pictures, James enjoys paying too much for craft beers and travelling.
Data Scientist (Jnr Associate)
Markela is a Data Science MSc student looking at the financial cost of climate change. She's keeping up with the climate race by exploring the environmental and social mechanisms that accelerate and differentiate human impacts.
Markela likes bubble tea, black cats, and beats.
Design & Events Lead
Adil is a brand and design magician with over ten years' expertise in the tech, filmmaking, agriculture and sports industries.
Adil delivered brand strategy and designed products, websites, stores, mobile apps for DJI, Hasselblad, Decathlon, Marvel and WRC. He may try to convince you that Comté is the best cheese in the world.
So, do not challenge Adil, he might love it!
Júlio C. Othon
Strategy & Ops Associate
A master's graduate in climate change, management, and finance from Imperial College London, Júlio is passionate about technology's potential to help address societal challenges. He has worked in impact venture capital, a mission-driven startup accelerator and a climate technology scale-up.
Even though Júlio works in risk management, he aspires to climb Mount Everest one day.
Dr Sally Woodhouse
Senior Climate Scientist (Snr Associate)
With a PhD in Arctic Climate and working on projects in extreme event attribution and geoengineering, Sally is interested in all climate-related things. She’s passionate about communicating science to the public and decision-makers.
When not thinking about climate models, you can find Sally with a good book and a glass of wine among her plants.
Director of Engineering
Starting out as a plucky graduate in the world of wealth management with an English degree, Aatish quickly realised the error of his ways - re-qualifying as a bona fide Computer Scientist.
He now spends most days leading the engineering capability at Climate X, while balancing his kickboxing, Spanish-learning and piano-playing when time allows!
VP of Technology
Andrew has worked in the London tech industry for over 20 years as an entrepreneur and at companies from venture-backed startups and scaleups, including Monzo, Amazon and Facebook.
With two daughters (one teen and one tween), he doesn’t have much time for hobbies but is starting to introduce his family to sailing - something he used to have time to do before they were born!
Director of Marketing
Raiyan has over a decade of experience in marketing, GTM strategy, SEO, and UI/UX design. Coming from one of the UK's top Microsoft Partners specialising in implementing ERP and CRM systems, he's a whiz at building automation and workflows to maximise conversions and drive inbound.
When he's not tinkering, he's usually found at a climbing wall or the gym.
Remote Sensing & Data Scientist (Associate)
Graham is a keen, technically-minded geophysicist with industry experience developing signal processing algorithms as well as machine learning and automation. He loves nothing more than getting stuck into new and exciting datasets, software and programming languages.
If he’s not programming, Graham is climbing, cycling and enjoying the finer things in life (e.g. Greggs).
Researching Scientist (Jnr Associate)
With a BSc in meteorology and an MBA from the University of Oklahoma, Izzi understands how weather and climate will impact industries worldwide. She's worked with researchers at the National Weather Center and MIT. Currently, she's working on a PhD at the University of Reading to study how climate change impacts renewable energy and power systems.
Full Stack Developer (Associate)
A BITS Pilani graduate, Siddhant started his career working with a social-tech startup back in India. It didn't take him much time to realise where he wanted to spend his time and skills, and since then, he has helped multiple climate/social tech startups scale up.
When not working, one can find him in a snooker club or with a glass of whiskey.
We’re driven by a purpose that’s much bigger than any of us
Climate change poses a threat to global stability; the UN Environment Programme says climate risks are estimated at US$17T annually – that’s a cost of up to 20% of global output equivalent to 1 in every $5 disappearing from your bank account.
Our academic partners
We work with some of the best scientific and business partners to ensure our approach is robust and meeting both regulatory and scientific scrutiny.
