Main areas of research are energy modelling for clean and sustainable development and energy access; renewable energy technology; environmental policy, energy markets, and climate change. Have focused mostly on all developing regions including Latin America, China, Asia & Africa. Other areas of interest are health consequences of agribusiness and environmental degradation; air pollution and ill health. These research areas are often associated with macro political economy, development and sustainability, mostly in poor and emerging economies;.

Expertise on multidisciplinary studies and interdisciplinary methods involving environment, technology, policy and development. 

Principal investigator of numerous international projects covering subjects such as multi-criteria approaches and energy access in off-grid areas, climate change communication, and transformation of domestic waste through dry-fermentation, particularly in growing towns.
