Ir. N. (Nina) Voulis


I am a PhD candidate in the group of Systems Engineering at Delft University of Technology. My main interest is the integration of renewable resources in urban power systems. I focus on data-driven modelling and simulation with an emphasis on real-world relevance and application. Previously I worked as a visiting researcher at Cornell University (New York, US) on renewable energy. I obtained my Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering in 2012 from Ghent University in Belgium.


I seek to build understanding of the impact of real-world urban demand on renewable resource integration in urban power systems. Currently, urban demand is mainly represented through residential demand. However, real urban areas are a mix of residential and service sector consumers. Moreover, these consumers are not homogeneously distributed in urban areas. My goal is to understand how urban demand heterogeneity impacts the local integration of renewables, and how we can support that integration.
