About

William Usher is Infrastructure System Modeller at University of Oxford. Will's research interests in model integration, infrastructure system of systems, energy modelling include the analysis of risk and uncertainty within the UK and global energy systems. One of the main challenges involves quantifying the probabilities, costs and ultimately risks of failure of technologies, policy and carbon targets given the challenges in meeting climate change.
