Postdoctoral Research Fellow





Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Renewable Energy Group, working on the Interreg EUROSWAC and FANBEST projects.

In EUROSWAC, I am working on replication requirements of SWAC installations in various sectors along the Channel coastline by solving a multi-objective optimisation formulation which specifically considers the seasonal variability in H&C demand and availability of energy.

In FANBEST, I analyse the Blue Economy (BE) stakeholder landscape, and investigate available funding and support mechanisms in the BE sector.
