Overview

Dr Sathsara Abeysinghe is a Post-doctoral Research Associate at Cardiff University. Her research interests include statistical assessment of energy distribution networks, analysing the grid impact of low carbon technologies, flexibility provision from decentralized resources and operation improvement of local multi-vector energy systems.

She received her B.Sc. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the University of Peradeniya-Sri Lanka in 2014, and her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Cardiff University, U.K. in 2018. Since 2018 she is working as a post-doctoral research associate at the Centre for Integrated Renewable Energy Generation and Supply at Cardiff University. She was a visiting scholar at Tianjin University in China and conducted statistical analysis on a large amount of electricity distribution network data. She also spent a secondment at Toshiba TRL in Bristol, and during that time she employed machine learning techniques in her research.

She is the Principal Investigator of the research project titled, ‘A decision tool for real-time operation of public sector multi-energy systems’, funded by the EPSRC through the National Center for Energy System Integration (CESI).
