Academic profile

I am an FNRS Research Associate (Chercheur Qualifié) and professor at the University of Liège, head of the Integrated and Sustainable Energy Systems (ISES) Research group

I conduct research in the field of Integrated Energy Systems, mainly focused on the transition towards clean and renewable energy production. In the course of my work I created and lead the development of various open-source modelling tools, such as MicrogridsPy, Dispa-SET or ProsumPy.

Research topics

Energy planning:

  • Energy sufficiency
  • Heat integration into energy systems and deployment of renewables
  • Integrated energy systems & sector coupling

International development:

  • Energy transition in developing countries
  • Rural electrification pathways and microgrids

Open-Source Projects

  • RAMP: Software suite for the stochastic simulation of user-driven energy demand time series
  • Dispa-SET: Power market model including unit commitment and optimal dispatch
  • GPExp: A Gaussian Processes framework for the analysis of Experimental Data
  • ThermoCycle: A Modelica Library for the dynamic modelling of thermal systems
  • CoolProp: An open-source, cross-platform, free property database based in C++ that includes pure fluids, pseudo-pure fluids, and humid air properties.
