Sugandha Srivastav

DPhil Candidate in Environmental Economics

University of Oxford


I'm a DPhil candidate in Environmental Economics at the University of Oxford supervised by Prof Cameron Hepburn.

My research focuses on the drivers of the low-carbon energy transition. I do applied econometrics, public finance and environmental economics to answer questions around steering innovation towards the social good.

I am also interested in the political-economy of energy transitions, focusing on the role of incumbents and inertia in policy-making.

I previously worked as an environmental economist at Vivid Economics in London, and prior to that, as a trade economist at ICRIER in New Delhi. I've worked with governments, international organisations and private firms to advise on various aspects of climate policy.
