Sini Numminen, M.Sc.(Tech.)


I am a PhD student at the School of Science at Aalto University, Finland. In 2009 I graduated from Helsinki University of Technology in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Development Studies at the Department of Social Sciences in Helsinki University. After graduation I worked in Germany as a researcher in a European association Distributed Energy Resources Laboratories (DERlab) where I gained a strong insight on the potential of renewable and distributed power units and the smart grids concept. My PhD work is supported by a research grant from the Tiina and Antti Herlin Foundation, Finland.
