Newcastle upon Tyne,
I received the BEng and MSc degrees from Durham University, UK and the PhD from Newcastle University, UK working on evaluating dynamic thermal ratings of overhead lines for load accomodation in medium voltage distribution networks. My PhD was industrially funded and was carried out as part of the LCNF funded Customer-Led Network Revolution project.
I am a member of the Power Systems Resaerch group and currently work on a number of projects covering various aspects of future power systems:
- Activating Community Engagement (NIA Northern Powergrid) – Evaluating the effectiveness of gamification as a novel consumer proposition to deliver domestic demand side response.
- Building as a Power Plant (EPSRC) – Investigating the potential for the Urban Sciences Building on Newcastle Helix to operate as a virtual power plant, with the potential to provide services to the wider electrical network.
- GenDrive (Innovate UK) – Evaluating incentives for smart EV charging.
- Enhanced Understanding of Network Losses (Northern Powergrid) – Developing an enhanced model of network losses as part of Northern Powergrid’s Losses Discretionary Reward activities.
In the past I have also worked in microgrids and off-grid systems, examining battery storage state of health as part of a solar home system and also network interventions around irrigation pumping.
My main research interests are around domestic demand response, energy markets, smart EV charging, virtual power plants, smart grids, dynamic and real-time thermal ratings of power systems components and network losses.
