Personal profile

Biography

Harry completed his PhD in Planning and Environment Management at the School of Environment, Education and Development, University of Manchester. 

He graduated in BEng (Hons) Electronics and MSc in Engineering Management with Distinction before pursuing his doctoral degree in Planning. 

He obtained various technical knowledge and soft skills at the higher education level and has worked within the electronics engineering field with Intel, renewable energy and SCADA designing in his early careers. He is now a Senior Tutor and Senior Fellow for Advance HE (SFHEA) within the School of Environment, Education and Development.

His research interests include sustainable development, sustainable cities, smart cities, urban mobility, renewable energy, brownfield re-utilisation, 4th generation district heating and heat pumps with district heating.

Research

Harry's PhD research explored the potential of developing brownfields for renewable energy harvesting sites. Brownfield is broadly known as previously developed land and can include derelict, abandoned and contaminated land.

With the increasing concern on climate change and global warming, brownfields can be one lucrative asset in reducing our carbon emissions by siting renewable energy technologies on them. There is currently no focus on merging the initiative for sustainable land development involving brownfield redevelopment with renewable energy harvesting.

Under the supervision of Prof Richard Kingston and Dr Sotirios Thanos, this research identified feasible brownfield sites that can be transformed into renewable energy sites and build a transferable process model to support the sustainable city initiative.

Harry has also worked with a team in Planning and Environmental Management with Dr Anna Gilchrist, Dr Gareth Clay and Dr Joe Glentworth on a research project commissioned for Natural England to investigate the influence of recreational pursuits on upland ecosystems in the UK.

Harry's research interest also extends to reduce social inequality with his involvement in a transport poverty research for the European Commission, in collaboration with Prof Karen Lucas and Prof Stefan Bouzarovski, where he simultaneously tackled the issue of energy poverty. This project was conducted in partnership with Oeko Institut (Germany), WiseEuropa (Poland), Centre for the Study of Democracy (Romania), Cambridge Econometrics (Belgium) and Ecoserveis (Spain).
