Aidan O’Sullivan is Associate Professor in Energy and Ai at UCL Energy Institute and a Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute. He is also the Co-Founder and CTO of Carbon Re a spin out from UCL and Cambridge University focused on reducing carbon emissions by Gigatonnes by using AI to improve the efficiency of energy intensive materials manufacture, cement, steel and glass etc. He is an electrical engineer by background and was awarded a PhD from the department of Mathematics in Imperial College London. Prior to joining UCL he worked as a postdoc at MIT.
Aidan's research at the Turing will be focused on how artificial intelligence methods can be deployed to improve the efficiency of the energy system, from how electricity is generated to how the National grid is operated.
