(Senior) Research Fellow, Centre for Environmental Policy, Imperial College London, UK

My areas of research are energy modelling for clean and sustainable development; renewable energy technology and environment; policy & energy markets. My research focuses mostly on all developing regions including Latin America, China, Asia & Africa.

I also work on political economy of development and sustainability, and on environmental degradation with impact on health and other socio-economic indicators.

I undertake multidisciplinary studies and develop interdisciplinary methods that involve environment, technology, policy and development. 

I led  international projects as PI on subjects such as multi-criteria and energy access in off-grid areas, climate change communication  I am currently working on transformation of domestic waste through dry-fermentation.
