Ellen is a Research Associate at the UCL Energy Institute working across multiple projects. Her current focus is on the design and analysis of smart meter trials. She is funded by the Smart Energy Research Lab (SERL) project, that will provide vital smart meter and contextual data from thousands of households in GB to researchers for approved research projects. The portal will transform GB energy research through the long-term provision of high quality, high-resolution energy data that will support the development of a reliable evidence base for intervention, observational and longitudinal studies across the socio-technical spectrum.
Her previous research focused on the use of thermostatically-controlled loads, such as fridges, for power system frequency control.
