I got my PhD degree from the Electrical and Electronic Engineering department at Imperial College London. My research is mainly focused on the interaction of gas/hydrogen and electricity systems from operation and planning perspectives. In this context, the modelling is carried out for e.g., GB energy system in 2030 and 2050, where a significant part of the heat and transport sector should be electrified. Furthermore, cost-effective transition to a lower-carbon energy system achieved by the employment of flexibility options (i.e., demand side response, electricity storage, flexible gas plants, multi-directional compressors, and interconnections) in the integrated operation and planning of different energy vectors (mainly gas/hydrogen, heat and electricity) is investigated. I was a Co-Investigator in the "Whole system analysis of advanced thermal energy storage technologies in future UK energy networks"  project. I am a Contributing Author in Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) WG 3 and contributed to many scientific papers as well as research projects related to the energy industry, such as projects for the Committee of Climate Change (CCC) and Ofgem.
