Gopinath Rajendiran
Atsuya Technologies
India
Currently, I am working on energy analytics and predictive maintenance of complex systems. Post-doctoral experience: I have worked on developing energy management strategies using non intrusive load monitoring (NILM) in buildings. I have developed decision support systems to monitor events and energy consumption of the electrical appliances/loads in a non-intrusive manner using machine learning/deep learning algorithms. The developed has product has also been tested successfully during various field trials and transferred the technology to industries. During my PhD, I have worked on developing fault diagnosis systems for electrical machines using machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques. My research focus was to learn the intelligence/knowledge from the proto-type system and then scale the model (transfer learning) to diagnose the faults in the actual/complex system, where the fault data samples are not easily available. My research interests include condition monitoring of engineering systems, vibration monitoring, predictive maintenance, energy management, signal processing, AI/machine learning, and data analytics.

The Centre for Petroleum, Energy Economics and Law, fondly called CPEEL, is the pre-eminent Centre for graduate energy studies and contemporary energy research in Nigeria. CPEEL was established through the generous support of John. D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation as a Regional Centre of Excellence. The main goal of the Centre is to train highly skilled personnel and conduct research on energy. The Centre was established, July 2011 and designed to strengthen the human capacity in sub-Saharan Africa’s energy sector. It was established as a Multidisciplinary Centre with the aim of bringing together energy professionals in the Sciences, Engineering, Law, Humanities, Social Sciences, and other related areas, in order to address energy issues in a holistic and collaborative manner. CPEEL covers all aspects of energy, including oil and gas, electricity, renewable, climate change, energy finance, regulations and energy contracts, rural energy and poverty, waste to energy as well as energy technology. The flagship of CPEEL is graduate training leading to the awards of Master and Doctorate degrees in Energy Studies and Energy Law as well as research on diverse energy issues. It is presently the only Centre of its kind in the African Region and maintains a cordial relationship with similar Energy Centres in Europe and America. CPEEL is also set to expand the scope of its responsibilities to community-based intervention. The Centre maintains extensive collaborations with various ministries, departments, agencies of government, local and international civil society organizations, development agencies, energy companies, research organizations, national assembly, and renowned global energy Centres.

After completing my Ph.D. in safety-constrained reinforcement learning, I got passionate about the sustainability and reliability of modern food systems. In my research, I apply supervised learning techniques to model the complex GxExM (genetics, environment, management) interactions that determine the environmental and nutritional outputs of agricultural systems. Moreover, I use reinforcement learning and Bayesian optimization algorithms to make data-driven decisions to optimize the productivity while minimizing the impact of such systems.

Luc Wuytens
Belgium, Leuven
Hi all, my 20+ yrs career is mainly about supply chain planning. However in recent years I became quite interested in AI and Big Data as well. As a result, I graduated summa cum laude last year, in 2020, for a postgraduate in big data and analytics with a dissertation in the context of deep learning and circular economy. Today I am working on the intersection of supply chain planning and AI, as director delivery for www.lop.ai. There is perhaps no direct link to climate change in my job, but I like to think that there are many indirect links. In my private time, I am aiming to become more 'engaged' towards climate change and I would like to contribute and use my skill set in this area as well.

Much of my research focuses on the assessment of 'embodied impacts' of buildings, i.e. environmental impacts (GHG emissions, etc) related to construction material processing (production, transport, end-of-life treatment). Embodied GHG emission are a hidden challenge for effective climate change mitigation in buildings and cities, as we could show in earlier research.

Within those projects, I have been modeling, forecasting, and optimizing different demand-side processes such as electric vehicles, smart building- and smart home loads, and renewable generation. I have coordinated the research group Smart Energy Systems, where I was responsible for aligning the DAI research for solutions for the energy system. I have co-supervised several Seminar, Bachelor and Master theses and project-based courses, mostly in applied machine learning for energy data, hoping to inspire more students to work in the field. In my doctoral research at TU Berlin, I work on analyzing low voltage-level smart meter data using non-Euclidean distance measures and neural networks with applications in load forecasting and load profile clustering.
