Economics of Innovation  Environmental Economics Energy Economics

Welcome to my website! 

I am a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer in Environmental Economics at the University of Oxford. I am also a Distinguished CESifo affiliate

My primary research explores the drivers of clean technology innovation. Specfically: how early-stage clean technologies can be financed and commercialised. I also investigate how to re-design power markets for a net zero future. 

To help operationalise climate policy, my secondary research explores the political economy of the energy transition, where my work looks at legacy laws that implicitly subsidise fossil fuels and the dynamics of lobbying. 

I hold research positions at the Smith School, Economics Department, Saïd Business School & Institute of New Economic Thinking at Oxford. 

I have worked as an environmental and energy economist at Vivid Economics and ICRIER where I advised governments, private firms, and international organisations on climate policy, natural resource management, and energy policy. I have engaged in projects across Southeast Asia, South Asia, Africa, Latin America and OECD economies (see Public Engagements).
