I am currently working as part of IMAGES (Integrated, Market-Fit, Affordable, Grid-Scale Energy Storage). This is an inter-disciplinary project investigating the potential for energy storage in the UK, particularly compressed air energy storage and high temperature thermal storage. My research focuses on dynamic optimisation and the development of control strategies, in order to assess the economics of grid-scale storage. I am working alongside Prof. Robert MacKay, Prof. Michael Waterson and Dr Monica Giulietti.

I also have an interest in atomistic solids, resulting from my PhD work on crystallisation.
