I will be leading a team to use solar power to tackle poverty alleviation in low-middle income countries as urgent efforts are required to reduce the cost of renewable energy in order to tackle the worst effects of climate change. In order to integrate solar energy further into our renewable energy mix, understanding the reliability of modules is key. This PhD project focuses on:

  • The modelling of emerging photovoltaic module technologies, including tandems and bifacial modules.
  • Engineering outdoor testing stands for experimental validation as well as using Southampton’s state-of-the-art laboratories and characterisation facilities.

A PhD Student in Electronic & Electrical Engineering at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. My research focuses on the Optimisation of Bifacial and Tandem Photovoltaic Modules through Outdoor Testing. 

Before enrolling at Southampton, I was an Electrical Power Engineering undergraduate at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom. I achieved a first-class grade in every module and thus, graduating with a high First Class Hons degree. 

My key interests include Photovoltaic Systems, Electric Vehicles, Electronic Design Automation & Power Electronics. I am a firm believer that these interests in Engineering play an important role in the future of this innovative world we live in!


Research interests

  • PV for Developing Communities
  • Tandem and Bifacial Modules
  • Cost-effectiveness & Feasibility of PV Systems 
  • Single Axis & Dual-Axis tracking of PV on a System Level

Please contact me for possible collaborations with my team and I via email.
