She has previously worked at Durham University as a Research Associate, at Alberta University, Canada as a Research Fellow and at Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania as a Senior Lecturer. Her research experience covers power system analysis and control, Smart Grids and Distributed Energy Resources integration in distribution networks. She is leading the research of Electric Vehicles integration and control in distribution networks. She has collaborated widely with industry, more recently during her placement as Royal Academy of Engineering Industrial Fellow at National Grid, working in the Energy Insights department. She contributed at 2015 Future Energy Scenarios (Chapter 7 Electricity Storage). These scenarios form the basis of National Grid network planning and is the industry standard for the future energy landscape. She is the PI of the Innovate UK / EPSRC project of technology transfer “Ebbs and Flows Energy Systems”. In this collaborative project with School of Computer Science and Informatics she developed a cloud-based Virtual Power Plant for controlling static batteries and V2G storage from electric vehicles for demand side response. She is a member of BSI technical committee ESL/120 Electrical Energy Storage and a nominated expert on IEC/TC120/WG1 Electrical Energy Storage Terminology She was a member of the CEN-CLC eMobility working group on Smart Charging; IEEE P2030.1 working group on “Draft Guide for Electric-Sourced Transportation Infrastructure” and a member of Low Carbon Vehicles Steering Group at the Welsh Government.
