Personal profile

Personal Statement

My passion is working with developing communities to achieve more and better energy access.  As part of the Energy for Development team within the EEE my research interests are aimed at energy poverty, sustainability of off-grid power systems, development economics, rural electrification, energy for development.  From 2012-2015 I have been heavily involved with the Malawi Renewable Energy Acceleraton Programme.  I am concurrently pursuing a PhD focusing on the application of smart technology to off-grid applications in developing countries.
