UCL Energy Institute
Jenny’s work in CREDS aims to combine physical models and timeseries data to understand the thermal performance of houses. This will feed into basic buildings research as well as current policy thinking such as smart EPCs and the Performance Gap. Prior to starting work on CREDS, Jenny worked on statistical models of process such as airtightness testing and EPC assessments. She also recently analysed heat pump performance and the effects of time-of-use tariffs in vulnerable households. Jenny completed a Physics degree at the University of Oxford. After a year spent working with a Christian organisation she came to UCL to undertake her PhD in energy and buildings. She then worked as a Consultant at Element Energy for 2 years before returning to UCL as a Research Associate. She is also Academic Manager of the EPSRC London-Loughborough Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Demand in the Built Environment.
