Project lead and researcher on projects in the electricity distribution and off-grid power sectors. These projects are addressing the need to cost efficiently decarbonise the power sector over the next thirty years by investigating the innovative network integration of new generation and demand technologies. Computer simulation, laboratory investigation and demonstration projects are used together to produce the new knowledge that delivers this need. Work with team of research associates and supervise PhD and MSc researchers.
Established researcher with ten years’ experience in numerous university research and teaching roles and previous experience working in the electronics industry.
PhD, Glasgow University, 2002. Dynamics of ions and neutral particles in the sheath region of processing plasmas.
BEng, Glasgow University, 1997. Electronics with Music.
