Why is your research important? 

My research is mainly committed to confronting climate change, focusing on enhancing solar energy systems' efficiency and reliability using machine learning. This involves developing algorithms for defect detection in solar panels, facilitating their performance improvement, and proactive maintenance. Additionally, I am crafting predictive financial models to determine the most economically advantageous time for replacing and disposing of solar modules. This multifaceted approach aims to reduce costs and waste, promoting economically viable and environmentally sustainable solutions.


What do you like about research?

I find great satisfaction in leveraging emerging computational models to drive tangible real-world outcomes. It is truly fulfilling to realise that my efforts can directly contribute to the progress of renewable energy technologies, facilitating the worldwide shift towards cleaner and more sustainable energy sources.


What do you like to do when you are not saving the world?

Cooking, exercising, and spending time with my husband and daughters. I love helping my daughters to shape their values and actions so they grow to be empowered, compassionate, and responsible individuals that can actively contribute to the well-being of this planet (and it works! my elder daughter is playing the role of the Sustainability and Social Justice Leader in her school.
