Postdoctoral Researcher in Low Carbon Technology, Liverpool John Moores University

Ariel Edesess is a low carbon technology researcher who researches practical ways small businesses can implement climate change measures. Her research focuses on zero carbon technology and human-centred technology design.

Edesess has been a postdoctoral researcher in Low Carbon Technology at the Liverpool John Moores University since 2018.

Prior to this, she completed her PhD at University College Cork with Denis Kelliher, Alistair Borthwick and Gareth Thomas in 2018 and then worked as a Research Fellow also at University College Cork on the Intelligent Bridge Assessment Maintenance and Management System” (BRIDGE SMS) Marie Curie 7th Framework Programme funded Project.

Edesess has worked across a variety of physics and engineering areas generally related to complex problem solving and enhancing critical thinking, focusing on analytical methods for improving access to offshore wind turbines for her PhD research and before this, she experimented with teaching physics to laypeople through gymnastics for her MSc research. Currently her interests lie in holistic sustainable development and human-centred technology design.
