I graduated with an M.Sc. (Tech.) from LUT University Energy Technology, 12/2019. After writing my Master's thesis on a business model for rural microgrids, I later joined the Fusion Grid project research team at LUT. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student at LUT School of Energy Systems (LES), and a researcher working on a LEAP-RE-SETaDiSMA research project which aimed to create a long-term partnership of African and European stakeholders in the field of renewable energy by supporting research and collaborative innovative projects.
