Biography

Mitigation of summertime overheating in homes is my PhD research area. Before my PhD I completed an MRes degree where my research focused on zonal heating controls. In both research projects I used the Loughborough Matched Pair test houses.

Before joining LoLo I was Compliance Manager for an insulation and heating company, where I coordinated the daily operation of the Green Deal finance scheme. Prior to that I was a Knowledge Transfer Associate at Anglia Ruskin University, researching ways to effectively market the Green Deal to new customers.

In addition to an MRes from Loughborough, I hold an MSc in Energy Policy and BSc in Geography, both from the University of Exeter. I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
