Projects per year
Connor is a member of the Future Power Networks and Smart Grids Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) at the University of Strathclyde and is in the final year of his PhD. Prior to joining the CDT, he obtained a BEng in Mechanical and Power Plant Systems, and an MSc in Electrical Power Engineering with Business.
His research is concerned with the electrification of domestic heat and transport and the corresponding impact on electricity distribution network operation and management. In particular, investigating the impacts of localisation on low carbon technology usage patterns and the associated implications for flexible management of low carbon local energy systems through high-resolution geospatial modelling.
Connor has a broad research interest in energy decarbonisation that is aligned with power system operation and management. More specifically this includes but is not limited to:
- The provision of flexible services for distribution network management.
- Spatial and temporal modelling of demand across multiple energy vectors.
- Social technical modelling to support policy makers in tackling fuel poverty.
- The role of microgrid technology in enabling resilient local energy communities in remote rural areas.
- The application of digital twins in future power systems.
He is keen to explore his own research interests though maintains that outputs are aligned with the dissemination of knowledge and the practical requirements of key actors involved in the rapidly evolving energy transition.
- Teaching Assistant for EE313-EM301 Optimisation and Statistics.
- Supervisory support for 4th year undergraduate projects.
