Senior Research Manager for the Eastern New Energy Project, University of East London

I am a Senior Research Manager for the Eastern New Energy Project at the University of East London Sustainability Research Institute. The ENE project has received funding from the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. Eastern New Energy helps to build a stronger Local Energy/Low Carbon Economy in the East of England providing support to a range of local activity that can develop the growth of a stronger local energy/low carbon system and market in the East of England region.

I also am a Lecturer at the UCL in Building Enviornmental Design, and am an Environmental Assessor with A Greener Festival.

My research interest relate to sustainability, green buildings, green events and building energy efficiency.
