Mina started as an analyst in THEMA in August 2019. She is a recent graduate from NTNU, holding a MSc in Energy and Environmental Engineering, specializing in the electrical power system. In her master’s thesis she investigated the potential for implementing blockchain technology as a tool in smart grid with the Smart Grid Architecture model as a framework. The work was focused on integration of electric vehicles into the power system, where an information system based on blockchain was developed for electric vehicle charging including demand response signals. During her studies she participated in two internships at Hafslund Nett, where she gained insight into network operation by working with fault analysis, grid investments and network tariffs.
