Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Research Fellow in the Institute for Energy and Environment with interests in future low-carbon power systems and off-grid energy in developing countries.  I received the MEng degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Strathclyde in 2000 and following seven years in the telecommunications industry returned to Strathclyde to pursue renewable energy related research.  I lived and worked in Malawi from 2008-2009, project managing a Scottish Government funded rural electrification project and maintain a strong interest in sustainable energy in developing countries.  My current role involves research on new methods of probabilistic planning and operation for electricity distribution networks facing high penetrations of Low Carbon Technology such as solar PV, electric vehicles and heat pumps.

Research Interests

  • Power system planning and operations
  • Low-voltage distribution network analysis
  • Integration of Low Carbon Technology to existing electricity distribution networks
  • Probabilistic modelling
  • Characterising electrical demand
  • Rural Electrification in developing countries
  • Off-grid solar PV systems for developing countries
