Personal profile


Shona's research focuses on developing methodologies to quantify the benefit of innovative step-changes in marine energy in terms of techno-economic, environmental and socioeconomic metrics. She is particularly interested in producing and communicating quantifiable evidence exploring the progress of the marine energy sector in reducing overall system costs and environmental impacts in the context of future net-zero power systems.

Shona is a Master of Science in Renewable Energy Systems and the Environment and an alumna of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Wind Energy Systems at the University of Strathclyde. Her PhD focused on the impact of a single European energy market on the economics and operation of wind power in Scotland, using various dispatch models to investigate the impact of introducing zonal pricing within GB due to the current CfD subsidy framework. During the course of her PhD she undertook an internship at the Scottish Government and volunteered as a STEM ambassador.
