About me

I work at Wärtsilä for the growth and development team. We focus on market development for battery storage systems and highly-flexible internal combustion engines as enablers of accelerated renewable integration. I design power system models to highlight the value of flexibility from dispatchable assets.

My Skills

Data Analysis

In energy being able to understand and parse through all of the available information is essential for coming to well-founded conclusions. 


Working in energy requires working with a broad spectrum of people and organizations. Elected officials, regulators, contractors, utilities, businesses, and residences all have different interests that must be balanced. 

Project Management

Project management is the practice of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet success criteria at the time.
