Please tell us about your role at PNDC
I am a Knowledge Exchange Associate at PNDC, specialising in condition monitoring and data science. I am involved in research activities of the Asset Management research theme, and other research projects around potential future power system solutions such as DSO transition.
How long have you worked at PNDC?
I joined PNDC in August 2020.
What was your background before joining PNDC?
I obtained B.Eng. and MSc degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Strathclyde. I continued my PhD study at Strathclyde, focusing on the application of data analysis and AI techniques for fault detection and diagnosis in distribution networks. I also took a part-time research assistant position in the department and worked around asset management, data analysis and GUI development.
What do you enjoy most about working at PNDC?
There are many great things about PNDC that I like. Everyone at PNDC is really friendly yet passionate about exploring innovative ideas and making them happen for power network transition and evolution. There are also various opportunities to work on different projects and engage with industrial stakeholders.
What can we find you doing in your spare time?
I like watching movies and TV shows after work, especially comedy which always makes me laugh. I am an explorer – I really enjoy learning new things and experiencing different cultures. I really enjoyed travelling before the pandemic (hopefully again soon!) but during lockdown, I found new interests in DIY and gardening.
