Habiba is a third year PhD student at the Centre for Environmental Policy, and part of the Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet Doctoral Training Partnership (SSCP DTP) at the Grantham Institute -- Climate Change and the Environment, funded by the Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC).

Habiba is interested in the implications of climate change mitigation objectives on energy system transitions, within the context of geopolitical and bio-geophysical constraints. She has published articles on the potential of carbon dioxide removal technologies in decarbonising transport and power sectors of the UK. She is part of the Clean Fossil and Bioenergy group (CleanFaB) under the supervision of Niall Mac Dowell (Reader in Energy Systems, Centre for Environmental Policy). 

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 also the current Chair of IChemE Energy Centre's Future Leaders Group and serves on the board of the centre.
