Carnot was co-founded by entrepreneurs Archie Watts-Farmer, Francis Lempp and Nadiur Rahman. Their aim is reduce global co2 emissions by 13% and bring clean, secure and affordable energy to all. To better understand Carnot and gain an insight into the companies’ motivations we carried out interviews with its co-founders, following this series we interviewed Francis Lempp, a young physicist with a passion to innovate.
Francis Lempp, 24, obtained his MSc in Particle Physics from Royal Holloway University of London in 2018 and decided to pursue ceramic engine design. Since then Francis has played a large role in delivering two government funded Innovate UK research projects on ceramic engine technology and co-founded Carnot.
We interviewed Francis to understand how he came to be an engineer, entrepreneur and co-founder of Carnot.
