Biography

Biography

I have a PhD in Geography from Durham University, UK. My thesis, titled 'Energy access in an era of low carbon transitions: politicising energy for development projects' revolved around of culture, development and energy. Before starting the doctoral research, for 4 years, I worked as a consultant in interdisciplinary teams. I collaborated across disciplinary boundaries on energy transitions and carbon finance projects in several other Indian states and Sri Lanka. This involved assessing potential for, designing and implementing energy projects like micro-grids. I have a masters degree in Natural Resources Management and bachelor degree in Botany.
