UCL Energy Institute
Gesche is a Senior Research Associate at the UCL Energy Institute. Her research focuses on determinants of energy consumption and temperatures in homes and the link between temperatures and health. Previously, she has worked as a researcher in the Centre for Energy Epidemiology, studying the differential impact of various predictors on home gas and electricity consumption. As part of the People, Energy and Buildings: Distribution, Diversity and Dynamics (PEB:D3) grant she worked on understanding heating demand temperatures and duration of heating periods in domestic buildings, comparing empirical data to model assumptions. Gesche has a background in Psychology / Neuroscience (PhD).
