Maria Sharmina is a Lecturer in Energy and Project Management at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester. Her main research interests include energy system modelling, interactions between building energy demand and renewable energy, and innovative business models for energy services informed by data science.

Maria has worked on a range of projects including: the EPSRC’s Shipping in Changing Climates project; the ‘Designing Sustainable Supply Chains’ project sponsored by a major retailer; and, a project identifying research methods for modelling energy and water demand funded by University of Manchester Research Institute.

As a visiting researcher at UCL over the summer 2016, she will be exploring existing datasets, such as the ‘Understanding Society’ study and the Living Costs and Food Survey, to predict whether households with certain characteristics would be more likely than others to opt for renewable energy installations and/or switching to renewable energy suppliers.
