Jose Luis Ramirez Mendiola

Project Researcher

University of Reading

Jose Luis is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on Flexibility in Energy Demand at the University of Reading. His work focuses on the analysis of the temporal dynamics of energy consumption patterns in relation to people’s engagement in the different activities that encompass their everyday lives.

His research addresses relevant questions through modelling tools which aim to improve our understanding how energy demand is bound up with the rhythm of society and what people do, and assessing interventions aimed at reducing demand peaks and increasing flexibility in the timing of energy demand.

Before joining CREDS, Jose Luis was working towards a PhD in Energy Research at the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford. Prior to that, Jose Luis graduated with a degree in Physics from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), where he also worked as a research assistant for the High-Energy Astrophysics group at the Astronomy Institute (IA-UNAM), helping with the development of stochastic models of Gamma-Ray Bursts.
