I am Senior Lecturer in the Institute of Energy Futures and my research is about the use of energy in the urban environment and the limits to natural resources. My main areas of interest are in energy security, sustainability, transport, electricity networks, and resource efficiency. I use techniques and methods including the application of robust methods for metrics and indicators, and data mining and analytics.I have published more than 80 reviewed articles and technical reports.
