Recent research interests focus on the use of modern financial mathematical tools to model management problems in energy systems. This work has been carried on over 4 grants in the last five years: one from DTI (in collaboration with Prof, G. Strbac, now at Imperial College), two from Joule and one from EPSRC (all in collaboration with Professor P. Duck of the School of Mathematics). This work has the co-operation and support of (among others) BP Alternative Energy, British Energy and the Battelle Institute.
In addition he is presently an investigator with responsibility for financial evaluation on the EPSRC funded SPRing consortium project, into the sustainability of nuclear power.
Papers based on this work are in preparation, and several other grant applications are planned.
