My research interests are optimal stationery and mobile battery storage sizing, operation, and aggregation for power system applications, and Ancillary Services through demand response for the future smart grid. We use advanced optimisation techniques, time series analysis, and artificial intelligence (AI) to solve existing and upcoming issues in the power systems' operation at the transmission and distribution levels.

If you have:
- a Master's degree with a minimum of three journal papers in Q1 venues,
or
- a Bachelor's degree with first-class honour from accredited universities
and
- background in stochastic modelling and control, optimisation, artificial intelligence, and/or time series analysis
and
you are interested to work on exciting and innovative research in the area of power systems and electricity market, please send me an email.
