Jose Luis's research focuses on further our understanding of the dynamics of electricity consumption patterns in the residential sector as a result of households' engagement in different activities. His research looks into the relationships between daily activity and appliance usage patterns, as well as into the effect that different socio-demographical factors have on household electricity consumption. The research should help improve our insight into the potential of low-carbon strategies such as intra-day demand load shifting.
Before joining the Lower Carbon Futures group at the Environmental Change Institute, Jose Luis graduated with a degree in Physics from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). He also worked as a research assistant for the High-Energy Astrophysics group at the Astronomy Institute (UNAM), helping with the development of stochastic models of Gamma-ray bursts.
