Dénes Csala

Lecturer in Energy Storage Systems Dynamics, Lancaster University

Dénes is a newly appointed lecturer (assistant professor) in Energy Storage Systems Dynamics with Energy Lancaster. His research interests include system dynamics, energy transitions, energy storage, complex systems, multi-agent systems and data visualization.

Dénes' previous work revolved around data science and system dynamics simulation modeling to study problems of sustainable energy transitions and biophysical economics, where he developed global and national climate-compliant decarbonization paths. His data analyses and visualizations balance on the fine line between work and hobby and he has participated in, organized and led educational workshops on sustainability and renewable energy across developing regions in Asia and Africa. He also leads the datactivism blog Try something new. Everyday., exploring topics in development through data analysis and visualization.

Hungarian by origin, Dénes was born and raised in Transylvania, Romania and obtained a BSc in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (2011). Later on, he moved to Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in Abu Dhabi to pursue an MSc in Engineering Systems & Management (2013) and continued for a PhD in Interdisciplinary Engineering (2016), both in collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 2014 he was a visting researcher at the Center for Collective Intelligence of MIT Sloan School of Management, working on the Climate CoLab project.

Dénes also believes that it is not only the quality of the research that matters but also the quality of the presentation - placing therefore great emphasis on data visualization and story-telling with data.
