Research Interests

Her research aims to examine the geothermal energy potential at a certain city; and to identify the number of GSHPs that could be installed in a district without losing control of the ground thermal capacity; and also to estimate the degree to which these systems could contribute to the heating and cooling demands of the buildings within that district.
