Supergen Energy Networks Hub

Staff Profile

Dr Matthew Deakin

Research Associate


I am a Research Associate with the School of Engineering, working with the Supergen Energy Networks Hub, the CLEARHEADS project (with University of Reading) and with the e4future project with the Turing Institute.

My current research interests are focussed on whole systems modelling of energy networks across network scales (both distribution and transmission), across energy vectors (gas, electrical and heat systems), with a particular focus on climate change impacts on these systems and data-driven approaches.

I received the M.Eng and D.Phil (PhD) degrees in Engineering Science from the University of Oxford in 2015 and 2020, resepectively. For the duration of my PhD I held a Clarendon Scholarship.

My main research interests are:

- Smart Local Energy Systems/Smart Grids
- Unbalanced Distribution Network Analysis
- Co-Simulation of Gas and Electricity Systems
- Power System Planning and Operations
- Whole Energy Systems Analysis
