Simon works on the UnderWRiDE project which studies the effect of hydrometeorological extremes on risks of water-related diseases, in particular leptospirosis.

Previously, Simon worked on the urban water-energy nexus in his PhD research.

Before coming to Imperial, Simon studied energy systems dynamics from an output perspective with the Transitions to New Technologies program at IIASA, looking at historical transitions in useful energy by energy carrier, sector and region.
