About Me

My interdisciplinary research involves analysis of big data originating from the performance of existing smart grid pilots and design-driven research on smart energy products and services. I am evaluating the monitoring data of these real-life residential pilots in Netherlands using simulation tools. The data will serve to map actual experiences, construct models and cross-check these models with real pilots to have accurate forecasting. My aim is to boost the smart energy innovation process and the smart grids respond to the demands of stakeholders in terms of performance, cost-energy efficiency, reliability and end users’ comfort.
