Personal profile


Dr Caterina Brandoni (MEng, PhD) is lecturer in Energy at Ulster University since February 2014 and she is a member of the Centre for Sustainable Technologies. Her research focuses on energy and sustainable development. Her scientific activity contributes to three main research areas: i) integration and optimisation of poly-generation systems ii) energy and water nexus and iii) energy planning and life cycle assessment. She is currently coordinator of the H2020-MSCA-RISE ALICE project on innovation in wastewater treatment plants to deal with climate change challenges. She is also coordinator of the Whole systems networking fund “Gender, ageing and latency in the transition to a low-carbon system: empowering women as decision makers” funded by the UK Energy Research Council. She is co-investigator in SPIRE II, “Storage Platform for the Integration of Renewable Energy II”, an INTERREG project led by Ulster University looking at how energy storage technologies owned by homeowners and businesses can address the variability of intermittent renewable resources, such as wind and solar energy. She is a member of the editorial board of “Proceedings of Civil Engineers-Energy”. She is member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the 14th Conference on Sustainable Development for Energy, Water and Environment Systems that will be held in Dubrovnik in 2019. She is a member of EU Cost Action NEREUS 'New and Emerging challenges and opportunities in wastewater reuse'. She has advised several Energy Strategy Plans of Italian local authorities for helping municipalities in becoming Sustainable Energy Communities.
