I am currently a Research Associate in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and a DSI Affiliate Fellow at Imperial College London, U.K.

My research focuses on the investigation of Big Data analytics, Artificial Intelligence methodologies and their applications in energy systems, aiming to establish novel data-driven energy system modelling approaches at national and international scale to radically facilitate the transition to future intelligent, low-carbon energy system paradigm.

In particular, my research interests include probabilistic flexibility quantification, probabilistic energy forecasting, statistical modelling, data-driven scenario generation and selection for system investment planning, system security assessment, and deep reinforcement learning-based retail broker design in electricity markets. My research has been funded by EPSRC, Horizon 2020, Innovate UK and National Grid.

I received the Best Paper Awards in 2016 International Conference on Probabilistic Methods Applied to Power Systems (PMAPS) and  2016 IEEE PES General Meeting.
