Farzaneh Daneshzand

Project researcher

University of Reading

Farzaneh has more than six years of expertise is in Energy Systems Modelling. Her interest lies at the intersection of energy, environment, and economics. At CREDS, she is working on the effect of electric vehicle charging on the electricity grid. Using a flexible approach in terms of network tier, special and temporal scale, the research seeks to examine the influence of EV charging strategies on the grid.

Prior to that, she was a researcher at the University of Waterloo, Canada where she worked on the social and economic effects of energy pricing. In her PhD research, she developed a System Dynamics model to forecast the natural gas supply and demand by modelling the dynamics between energy income and investment in energy infrastructures. That research explores long-term effects of pricing and export policies and analyses their effect on the future economic viability, energy security, and environmental sustainability and examines corrective policies. Farzaneh has also industry experiences as a strategic planning consultant and supply chain management consultant.
