Research Principal, University of Technology, Sydney
Scott Kelly is a Research Principal at the University of Technology, Sydney. Previously he was a Research Associate and PhD Candidate in the Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR) in the Department of Land Economy at the University of Cambridge. His research interests cut across several subject areas including economics, energy, sustainable development and climate change.
Research completed during his PhD was on "Decarbonising the English Residential Sector: Modelling Policies, Technologies and Behaviour within a Heterogeneous Building Stock". During the PhD he developed several new statistical models for predicting and explaining residential energy demand and emissions. A major contribution of this research was the development of a new high temporal energy and emissions building stock model for the UK. The model represents over 15,000 unique dwellings in the UK and is able to estimate daily energy demand from each individual dwelling.
While at Cambridge Scott was working on a project called the Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC). Within this project he led work on the development of economic models for understanding the relationship between infrastructure systems and the economy. He is particularly interested in modelling the impact of disasters on the wider economy.
