Research Interests
Dominic’s research explores spatial, racial and socioeconomic patterns of residential energy affordability, consumption and efficiency.

Particularly, he is interested in identifying spatial clusters of high energy consuming and high energy inefficient households to best locate residents mired in fuel poverty. 

Moreover, he is interested in developing methods for selecting cost-optimal energy retrofit policies for residential buildings at the urban scale.
