She is interested in the integration of negative emissions/greenhouse gas removal technologies into energy systems, subject to geopolitical and bio-geophysical constraints. She will be carrying out socio-techno-economic analyses to understand the water-land-carbon-energy nexus around possible future energy systems, under the supervision of Niall Mac Dowell (CPSE, CEP, Imperial College London).
Habiba completed both her Bachelor's and Master's degrees at St John's College, University of Oxford where she specialised in Chemical Engineering. She is a keen footballer and athlete.
