Research Interests

Josh joined the EPECentre in September 2019 after completing a PhD with the GREEN Grid Project. His research is in the area of power system stability, and the impacts of variable renewable energy (VRE) on power system security. He completed his Bachelor of Engineering, Electrical and Electronic, at the University of Canterbury with First Class Honours in 2013. He is keenly interested about complex systems, their design, efficient operation and maintenance, within the complex decision processes of a deregulated industry, to benefit the general welfare of the country.
