Research Interests

My research focuses on sustainable systems. I study how our infrastructure needs to evolve to become zero-carbon. In other words, how much, where, when and in what technology to invest.

Currently, I'm looking for:
- 1 PhD student on distributed energy technologies for cities and small industries
- 1 PhD student on planning the sustainable energy transition for the Pacific Islands
- 1 PhD student, open topic, in the fields of smart districts/buildings with distributed technologies OR interactive visualization for energy systems.
