Edward O'Dwyer is a Research Associate in the Centre for Process Systems Engineering (CPSE) within the Chemical Engineering Department at Imperial College London. His research focusses on control, modelling and optimisation aspects of urban energy systems, with particular emphasis on the incorporation of data science, machine learning and the IoT within multi-vector energy systems.

Edward completed his PhD in 2016 in the field of control engineering for building energy systems at University College Cork (in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department), with research carried out in collaboration with United Technologies Research Centre Ireland (UTRC-I). Following this, he worked with UTRC-I before joining Nilay Shah's group at Imperial College as a Research Associate.
