Personal profile

Research interests

PhD student researching and modelling the use of hydrogen in our future energy systems.

Sponsored by the UK government department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the EPSRC, my project focuses on the use Power-to-Gas as a means to decarbonise the heating sector and help balance the intermittent supply of electricity provided by renewables. This work is largely carried out through large-scale optimisation modelling.

I completed my undergraduate (MEng) degree in mechanical engineering at the Unversity of Cambridge. Before starting my PhD I spent 18 months as an engineer at Frazer-Nash Consultancy where I worked on a range of structural and numerical modelling projects in the oil & gas, renewables and transport sectors.
