Meysam Qadrdan

  • His research area covers expansion and operational planning of interdependent energy networks (including electricity, gas, heat and hydrogen) at different scales from community to national and international level. He also look at interactions between energy systems and other sectors such as transport and water.

    He develop optimisation and simulation modelling tools to address real world questions and inform policy in the area of energy systems and its interaction with water resources.
