His professional experience led him to provide risk assessment and advisory services around energy infrastructure projects for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Investment Bank.

Some of the key projects he worked on include the Trans Adriatic Pipeline, a natural gas pipeline delivering natural gas from Azerbaijan to Italy. He structured the commercial terms of gas transportation agreements for the pipeline, and supported their negotiations.
