Personal profile

Academic Biography

I am a Research Fellow based at the School of Computing, Engineering and Digitial Technologies. My research interests span the broad topic of energy and society, with a focus in new technology design and development, consumption and everyday life, and energy, cities and conflict.

I am interested in the intersections between technology design and use, new energy technologies, their conception and adoption. I am currently involved in the H2020 Project REACT exploring the design and adoption of Demand Response technologies in geographical islands. I am also actively engaged in research on cities and infrastructures in the Global South.
