Biography

Andreas Procopiou received his BEng degree from Brunel University London, in 2011 and the MSc and PhD degree from the University of Manchester, in 2012 and 2017, respectively. Prior to his current role he worked as a visiting research engineer at the department of Measurements and Information Systems of Electrical Networks (MIRE) at EDF R&D in Paris (the largest R&D centre in Europe) where he developed and investigated active network management techniques to solve voltage and thermal issues in real French and UK low voltage distribution networks. He has a strong experience in network integration and control of distributed energy resources and future low-carbon distribution networks. He has authored more than 10 technical reports for EDF R&D (France) and AusNet Services (Australia), and 8 peer-reviewed conference and journal papers (in top-class international IEEE conferences and IEEE Transactions). He had made successful international collaborations with academics across the world (i.e., University of Costa Rica, Sao Paulo, Melbourne and Manchester) and companies within the UK (ENWL), France (EDF), Australia (AusNet Services) and USA (EPRI).
