I am a Research Fellow working on statistical learning and control for electricity grids. My research focuses on the development of analytical and computational methods for reliability analysis (including Monte Carlo sampling methods, learning of proxy models, quantification of uncertainty) and the decentralised control of smart appliances using mean field approaches.

Recently, I gave a talk at Tech Foresight 2037 on the future of decentralised electricity grids. You can watch it here.


I am a lecturer on Smart Grid Technologies (EE9-FPN1-01), a core module of the MSc programme Future Power Networks

For the CDT Future Power Networks and Smart Grids (joint between Imperial and University of Strathclyde) I teach part of the module Managing Risk and Uncertainty in Grid Operation (Strathclyde-EE807).

Occasionally, I lead physics activities for visiting schools in the Wohl Reach Out Lab.
