Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellow

Electronic and Electrical Engineering


Personal statement

I am a Senior Lecturer and Strathclyde Chancellors Fellow in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. I joined the University in 1998 and came to work in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering in April 1999. Previously, I had studied Aeronautical Engineering at Glasgow University at undergraduate level and then undertook postgraduate study in the department Computer Science at Strathclyde, gaining an MSc there in 1998 followed by a PhD in EEE 2005.

Research Interests

My main research focuses on developing and applying data driven methods to industry problems, often where there is limited data or a lack of domain knowledge. These applications have been right across power systems from generation (nuclear, solar and wind), through networks (both transmission and distribution) out to end use and supply. The resulting software solutions have been used to automate and predict condition assessment, detect anomalous conditions and simulate future behaviours to support asset management and future planning business objectives. Translating this to other fields, I was co-founder of the spin out company Silent Herdsman Ltd, who developed an intelligent precision livestock management platform for the dairy industry.

I am currently principal investigator on the EPSRC funded Analytical Middleware for Informed Distribution Networks (AMIDiNe) project working to develop data driven power systems models that provide a more accurate view of uncertainties surrounding loads on unmonitored distribution networks in order to better inform where barriers to Net Zero may exist. Previously, I was an investigator on the EU FP7 Orchestrating Renewable Integrated Generation in Neighbourhoods (ORIGIN) project and co-investigator on the EPSRC BuildTEDDI Aging Population Attitudes to Sensor Controlled Home Energy (APAtSCHE), Aggregators as diGital Intermediaries in Local Electricity markets (AGILE) and Transactive Energy Supply Arrangements projects.
