I am a Lecturer in Power Systems at the School of Engineering of the University of Edinburgh and a member of the Institute for Energy Systems, where I research renewable energy conversion and integration, smart grids and energy efficiency. I am investigator and work package leader in several large collaborative UK and EU research projects with a total budget in excess of £18M such as the FP7 DTOCEAN, the FP7 ITN ADVANTAGE and the EPSRC UKMER projects, and have co-authored more than 40 peer reviewed publications. I currently lead a group of 8 Doctoral and 3 Postdoctoral Researchers, all working in the areas of renewable energy and smart grids. My teaching includes courses on renewable energy and control engineering at both under- and postgraduate levels. I am a Senior Member of the IEEE and Member of the IET and a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Ambassador for East Scotland.
