Biography

I am Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Global Energy and Climate Policy at the SOAS Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (CISD) and Deputy Director and Co-founder of the SOAS Centre for Sustainable Finance (CSF). I am also Deputy Academic Director of the University Network for Strengthening Macro-financial Resilience to Climate and Environmental Change headquartered at the CSF and served as Contributing Author to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report (AR6 WGII).

Research interests

My research interests include organizational change and innovation in global energy, climate and financial governance; the mainstreaming of climate goals into financial institutions' strategies and operations; innovative financial mechanisms for climate mitigation and adaptation; economic analysis and evaluation of climate adaptation and resilience-building interventions (especially cost-benefit analysis and impact analysis); and the political economy of energy transitions.
