Dr Sheridan Few

Dr Sheridan Few


Dr Sheridan Few is a Lecturer in Urban Energy Systems, leading the energy module on MSc Sustainable Cities, teaching on energy access and climate change mitigation on undergraduate programmes, and conducting research around energy, transport, decision making, and climate change mitigation. Sheridan is also co-leader of the Energy and Climate Change Mitigation (ECCM) research group.

Sheridan previously worked as a Research Fellow in Decision Making under Deep Uncertainty, developing practical steps to better account for uncertainty in planning, including through incorporating flexible approaches, and plans which are robust to a wide range of possible futures.

Before joining the University of Leeds, Sheridan was a Research Associate at the Imperial College London’s Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment, working to understand how to design and operate low carbon electricity systems across UK and energy access contexts. Sheridan also used integrated assessment models to calculate global energy system pathways towards ambitious climate targets, and conducted expert interviews to understand cost and performance trajectories of energy storage technologies, and to understand their role in the UK electricity system.

Sheridan completed his PhD on computational modelling of organic photovoltaic materials in the Physics department of Imperial College London in 2015, worked with Solar Press (now part of SPECIFIC) to scale up production of organic photovoltaic devices, and completed a BA in Physics at the University of Oxford in 2009.
