I completed both my bachelor and master’s degrees in Helsinki, under the wings of Aalto University School of Engineering in the Energy Technology programme. I dug deep into energy system studies, modelling and simulation. My master thesis was about studying potential of novel energy conservation methods in passenger ships. Before ending up in the CDT I worked in the wind power industry in sales and market analysis. After a year in the renewable energy business it was time to shift into studying energy demand.
I am keen to finding problems that span over different disciplines and have maximum impact. As my Master of Research dissertation project in 2017-2018 I looked into how control strategies of HVAC systems could be designed for communities to allow their use for demand response.
In my PhD research I continue in the intersection of theory and practical implementation of building energy flexibility. The aim is to design, implement and test control strategies in test buildings on Loughborough campus to deliver demand response. Realising building energy flexibility potential can contribute to reaching a more affordable, clean and secure future energy system.
