Complex Systems Summer School 2014


I am doing a PhD in energy systems modeling at Imperial College London, and am particularly interested in understanding the opportunities and threats presented by the transition to clean and renewable energy technologies at a national and continental scale.

My general research interests are focused on energy policy and energy systems modeling. I am also interested in climate policy more generally, including resilience and strategies for adapting society and infrastructure to a changing climate. My background is in environmental science and policy.

For projects, I'm interested in the topics above but also in many other areas such as sustainable economic systems, ecology, or agriculture, amongst others.

I am an experienced Python programmer, and also know Javascript and some C and R.
