About me

Master of science in power systems engineering (Tampere University of Technology, 2018) and doctoral researcher in the field of power quality.

I study power quality in the future distribution networks that include distributed energy resources. My aims are to investigate the impacts of solar power plants, electric vehicle charging, battery storages and demand response on power quality and how power quality can be monitored and analysed.

The analyses of my research use power quality data measured by me from various sites such as office building and microgrid.

My research work has been part of Business Finland's Social Energy - Prosumer Centric Energy Ecosystem (ProCem) and Prosumer Centric Energy Communities – towards Energy Ecosystem (ProCemPlus) projects and Academy of Finland's Analytics project.
