Research supervision

I am very interested in hearing from graduate students who would like to carry out a research project on power systems, energy & environment, smart grids and education. My key objectives are:

  • To support the student to design, plan, carry out, and complete independent and original research that can be written up as a completed research thesis.
  • To assist the students to regularly monitor their progress.

I have supervised on more than 30 students as first or secondary supervisor with successful progression and completion.
