Summary: PhD candidate in Behaviour and Building Performance Group
Employment: Researcher : CUSE, IIT Bombay and CEE, Stanford University
I am an aspiring scientist with a background in engineering and sustainability science, which shapes my perception of engineering as a tool for reducing inequality.
My current research involves the identification of 'invisible' drivers of energy demand in poverty in the Global South. I want to derive a 'just' policy framework for energy sustainability in poverty based on the philosophical lens of energy justice and systems theory. My study area includes slum rehabilitation housing of Mumbai in India; Lagos in Nigeria; and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
