Add event to calendar vCal

Speaker: Mathilde Fajardy, EPRG, University of Cambridge

Part of EPRG E&E Seminar series


Mathilde joined EPRG as a Research Assistant to explore least cost decarbonisation pathways of the heat sector in the UK. She holds undergraduate and Masters’ degrees in Energy Engineering, with a specialisation in heat transfers, from Ecole Centrale Paris (France), and she is currently completing her PhD in Process Systems Engineering and Environmental Policy at Imperial College. At Imperial, Mathilde studied the role of negative emissions in mitigating climate change, with a focus on bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS). She has developed a modelling and optimisation framework which quantifies the resource and financial costs of deploying BECCS at scale.
