About

Peace / Salaams

Thanks for visiting. I’m Irshaad and this is my online home. I’m an Industrial and Systems Engineer interested in building better socio-technical systems. I’m currently trying my hand out at academia as a lecturer at Wits University (in Industrial Engineering), as well as helping businesses and organisations think through how we might design a better world (through my fledgling consultancy).

Having spent the majority of my (still young) career in renewable energy in South Africa, I’ve broadened my attention to the design and building of complex socio-technical systems (energy being just one type of these systems). Let’s connect if you’d like to get in touch.
