Research Fellow - Centre for Energy and Environmental Markets, UNSW

I am a Research Fellow at Centre for Energy and Environmental Markets with the University of New South Wales and a recipient of the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. My research focuses on generation investment and policy support frameworks for facilitating high penetration of renewable energy in the electricity industry. The research builds upon a modelling tool developed during my PhD for exploring generation investment and planning in the context of significant future uncertainties and multiple policy objectives.

Prior to this role I was an engineer at the National Load Dispatch Centre at Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, which a state enterprise that owns and manages the majority of Thailand's electricity generation capacity and transmission networks.

I also hold a M.Eng in Energy Economics and Planning from Asian Institute of Technology and B.Eng (Electrical) from the University of Melbourne. My research interests include electricity generation investment under uncertainty, risk analysis, renewable energy integration, energy economics and sustainability in the energy industry.
