What do I do: I lead a small team of analysts who predict our network gas usage on a long-term basis and ensure we book an accurate amount of gas from the National Transmission System to see us through a peak winter day.  We also model and report on the amount of gas leaked into the atmosphere through our pipes, providing support to projects which seek to help reduce our emissions.

A bit about me: I have a first-class degree in Criminology but found my calling in a maths and engineering environment when I started work for NGN in 2010 as a Support Engineer in System Control, I’ve never looked back! As well as S4TP I am a member of STEM Hub North East and the Women’s Whole Energy Systems Research & Innovation Network (Werin).  I have a husband and two young daughters who keep me on my toes! My spare time is spent with my family and friends, but the things I like to do just for me include playing football, boxing, hiking, reading books and listening to a variety of podcasts.
