Vijay Avinash is a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Oxford.
His doctoral thesis was on “Techno-Economics of Optimised Residential Heating under Power Sector Decarbonisation”. Vijay developed a national level energy system model and a residential heating system model during the course of his doctoral research at Imperial College London. Prior to this he was a Research Engineer at Airbus Group Innovations where he analysed energy and power management algorithms for platforms across the various business units. Vijay also has a master’s degree from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Here he developed plant-wide control algorithms for a solar powered water recycling system.
Vijay is interested in energy systems, the interplay between electricity markets and demand side flexibility, decentralised energy resources and optimisation.
