Biography

I am passionate about improving the sustainability, affordability and reliability of Australia’s electricity supply and aim to be at the forefront of innovation in the Australian electricity industry.

 

I want to leverage the data availability and networking capabilities of electrical equipment to create novel solutions to the problems we face both nationally and internationally in shifting towards renewable electricity supply.

 

My PhD project focuses on the increased decentralisation of our electricity supply, particularly with respect to rooftop solar PV and residential battery systems which are seeing rapid increases in penetration in our distribution networks. I intend on developing improved planning and operational strategies for the integration of distributed energy resources within existing and possible future regulatory and market frameworks.
