Our support for our students doesn’t stop when they complete their degree or doctorate. It continues throughout their career through our alumni network.
That circle of former students extends around the world and it includes a large number of senior figures in the industry and founders of well-known firms. We’re delighted to regularly welcome many of these high-achievers back to UCL-Energy at alumni events and as guest lecturers.

What our students think of studying at UCL-Energy
Jenny finished her PhD in March 2014 and started working for Element Energy in the built environment team. Since then she has worked on a range of low carbon projects for clients including energy companies, DECC and a historic buildings charity.
Christophe completed his PhD at the UCL Energy Institute in 2013, which aimed to characterise quantitatively the uncertainties that have most influence on long-term projections of oil and gas production. Following his PhD, Christophe joined the Institute for Sustainable Resources as a Research Associate and he is currently lead researcher for the Resources and Vectors theme of the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC).
After having successfully passed his PhD examination in December 2011 at the UCL Energy Institute, Fabian moved to Paris in January 2012 to take up his work as energy analyst in the Global Energy Economics Directorate of the International Energy Agency (IEA). Each year, his team publishes the World Energy Outlook (WEO), the IEA’s flagship publication. Fabian is involved in energy modelling with a focus on climate change mitigation and the industry sector. For the WEO-2012, Fabian worked on the analysis and modelling on energy efficiency and climate change mitigation and drafting of the those chapters. During his time at the UCL Energy Institute, Fabian acquired knowledge and skills that have proven very applicable to his current work, in particular energy modelling.
While Fabian used an optimisation model, UK MARKAL, for his PhD, he now works with a simulation model, which allows him to compare the strengths of each approach and improve the IEA’s energy model based on this experience. Over the next months, Fabian will be involved in various efforts: further developing the industry sector modelling of the IEA’s World Energy Model; contributing to the energy efficiency chapter of the Baseline Report for the UN Sustainable Energy for All Initiative; organising the 32nd edition of the International Energy Workshop; and work on the special 2013 WEO report on climate change.
