Adrian’s main research interests are building integrated solar collectors and solar driven desalination technologies. He has an MSc in Renewable Energy and Energy Management and several years’ experience of undertaking related commercial and academic research.

He recently completed his PhD in photovoltaic-thermal integrated collector-storage solar water heaters at Ulster University which focussed on theoretical and experimental analysis of novel planar liquid-vapour thermal diodes to reduce heat losses.

Prior to embarking on his academic career, Adrian worked for 15 years as a consulting engineer providing advice to construction industry professionals on building acoustics design and environmental noise impact.
