Frin is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Leeds, holding an EPSRC fellowship, hosted by the Centre for Integrated Energy Research, with a joint appointment across the faculties of Engineering and Earth and Environment. Frin is currently working on a project entitled “reducing heat demand in UK cities: using complexity science to enable effective decision-making” and “spatial mapping tools for district heating”. She is also a researcher in the iBUILD consortium which is funded by EPSRC and ESRC and aims to develop new business models to improve the delivery of infrastructure systems and the services they provide.
Previously, Frin was a research fellow on the City Energy Futures project; an interdisciplinary project bringing together mathematicians, computer simulation scientists, engineers and social scientists to investigate the use of complexity modelling in city-level energy decision-making. Before joining the university in 2010, she worked in the public sector, developing strategic programmes to support the energy and environmental sectors.
