Harry is a PhD researcher in Planning and Environment Management in the School of Environmnent, Education and Development at the University of Manchester.
He received his earlier education in BEng (Hons) Eectronics and MSc in Engineering Management before pursuing his doctoral degree in Planning.
He obtained various technical knowledge and soft skills at the higher education level, and has worked within the electronics engineering field with Intel, renewable energy and SCADA designing in his early careers. Now, he is a scholar, teaching assistant and Postgraduate Research Representative within the School of Environment, Education and Development.
His research interests include sustainable development, sustainable cities, smart cities, urban mobility, renewable energy, brownfield re-utilisation, 4th generation district heating and heat pumps with district heating.
Harry's current research explores the potential of developing brownfield for renewable energy harvesting sites. Brownfield is broadly known as previously developed land and can include derelict, abandoned and contaminated land.
With the increasing concern on climate change and global warming, brownfield can be one lucrative asset in reducing our carbon emission by siting renewable energy technologies on them. There is currently no focus on merging the intititative for sustainable land development involving brownfield redevelopment with renewable energy harvesting.
Under the supervision of Prof. Richard Kingston and Dr. Sotirios Thanos, this research aims to identify feasible brownfield sites that can be transformed into renewable energy sites and build a transferable framework for this initiative.
