Vijay Avinash is a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Oxford. Vijay is interested in the interplay between electricity markets and demand side flexibility. He is keen on exploring how decentralised energy resources will help provide value to both consumers and suppliers in a low carbon future. His main contributions will be in areas related to system modelling and computation of management strategies for flexible assets. His doctoral thesis at Imperial College London analysed the combination of national level electricity system operation with demand side resources in the residential heating sector. 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.
