Research Associate – Centre for Energy and Environmental Markets, UNSW Australia

I am a research associate with the Centre for Energy and Environmental Markets (CEEM) at the University of NSW, in a research role focused on integration of renewable generation into power grids.

Prior to this I worked in consulting, most recently at AECOM, and earlier at ROAM Consulting.

I have been the lead analyst and author of a range of studies whilst at AECOM, including work on 100% renewables, modelling the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, and looking at remote solar-diesel hybrids for the mining sector.

I led ROAM’s Renewables division, a team of 5 highly qualified analysts specialising in the integration of renewable technologies and the impacts of climate policy on electricity systems. As Principal, I was responsible for leading ROAM’s capabilities in renewable energy modelling, including representing ROAM at conferences and public forums and leading the development of ROAM’s expertise in analysis and modelling. I was also the primary consultant delivering a wide range of projects.
