Biography

Harry completed his PhD in Planning and Environment Management at the School of Environment, Education and Development, University of Manchester. 

He graduated in BEng (Hons) Electronics and MSc in Engineering Management with Distinction 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. He is now a scholar, Fellow for Advance HE, Graduate 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.

Research

Harry's 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 emissions by siting renewable energy technologies on them. There is currently no focus on merging the initiative 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 process model to support the sustainable city initiative.
