I am a PhD Candidate in the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG) in the Department of Land Economy at the University of Cambridge. I received my Masters in Philosophy in Technology Policy from the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge.
My MPhil research focused on comparing the favorability of national policy and legislative climate for medium- to large-scale distributed generation technologies. Our team worked closely with GE on a number of potential markets for their renewable and conventional cogeneration technologies. Currently, my PhD research focuses on rural electrification policies in developing countries and their impact on the scale and success of off-grid electrification using solar PV.
My current research focuses on policy and legislation in support of rural electrification, primarily in India. I am interested in rural electrification policies in developing countries more broadly and their impact on the scale and success of off-grid electrification using solar PV.
