Louis is a Visiting Researcher and BAEF Research Fellow at the Energy and Resource Group with Prof. Duncan Callaway. He investigates the large-scale deployment of modeling and control algorithms to perform demand response with residential heating appliances, with a strong focus on practical implementation and testing. He is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree with the research group ISES from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Liège, Belgium. He received the M.Sc. degree in Energy Engineering from KU Leuven, Belgium, in 2019.
Louis is currently the Head of Algorithms at ThermoVault, a Belgian company that valorizes the flexibility of residential heating in Europe. At ThermoVault, Louis has co-developed, tested and deployed several demand response algorithms on clusters of water and space heaters. His activities also include business development and regulatory projects.
