Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Teaching Associate in the Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Strathclyde and senior fellow of the HEA.

I teach across a wide set of contexts for Strathclyde – four UG taught courses in lectures, tutorials and laboratories (including a Graduate Apprenticeship), UG project supervision, leadership of staff across the CTP (China Teaching Partnership) programme, as well as more recently leading department teaching, learning and assessment activities through COVID-19. Across the EEE CTP I am the coordinator of the CTP WG, co-lead the China Summer School and lead the 2+2 student induction. As co-ordinator of the CTP WG I mentor staff to deliver modules to students at three of our Partner Institutions and deliver 3 of these modules each academic year. I am also involved in training departmental PG Teaching Assistants in my role on the EEE Teaching Quality and Innovation Working Group (TQIWG).

I am actively involved in teaching and learning pedological research with my principal areas of interest in Project Based Learning and Competency Based Assessment. I am developing for the 21/22 academic year an UG module that will integrate these two areas into the heart of the 1st year curriculum as they participate in a sustainable design challenge from Engineers Without Borders. 

My principal research interests include multiple energy carrier energy system modelling and optimisation techniques as well as the reduction of emissions and increased efficiency in the energy sector through the integration of (distributed) low carbon energy sources. From 2008 to 2012, I was a member of the EPSRC funded Transition Pathways consortium developing HESA– Hybrid Energy System Analysis - Tool for integrated energy system studies – before joining the EPSRC funded Realising Transition Pathways project to continue my research alongside consortium interdisciplinary research including investigating 50% distributed low-carbon electricity generation in the UK.
