Michael Dale
Post-doctoral Researcher

Michael Dale joined GCEP as a Post-doctoral Researcher in February 2011. Prior to this he undertook his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering with the Advanced Energy and Material Systems (AEMS) Laboratory at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. His doctoral thesis was "Global Energy Modelling - A Biophysical Approach" which married net energy analysis with systems dynamic modelling to study the interaction of the economy with the energy sector. He also carried out a number of community-based energy-related projects whilst in New Zealand.

Michael's research interests include the long-term, large-scale dynamics of the energy-economy system; the energy-return-on-investment (EROI) of energy production technologies and how this value effects the classification and development of energy resources and; the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. He also holds a Masters Degree in Physics and Philosophy from the University of Bristol, UK.
