Shalika Walker is a Ph.D. student from the group of Building Physics and Services (BPS-supervisor: Prof. Wim Zeiler). She is involved in the project, Smart Energy Systems in the Built Environment (SES-BE: ses-be.tue.nl ). She is currently working on long-term energy infrastructure planning and analyzing the performance of buildings under the impact of clean energy initiatives. During her master thesis, she always kept a broad field of interest and in September 2017, started on the SES-BE project within BPS group at TU/e. The multidisciplinary work within the project and the broad range of exciting topics always captivate her profoundly. Her research interests are mainly, neighborhood level energy management, all-electrical energy systems and energy neutral neighborhoods.
Shalika Walker, obtained her Bachelor degree (Honors) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. She received the KIC-Innoenergy master scholarship and completed her master studies in Europe. Her Master of Energy degree was received from the Katholic University of Leuven, Belgium and Master of Electrical Engineering for Smart Grids and Buildings degree from INP Grenoble, France. During her stay in France, she has completed her master thesis at French alternative energies and atomic energy commission (CEA) under the title “Distributed Model Predictive Control for Buildings”.
