I am a Political Ecologist based at the Centre for Climate and Energy Transformation (CET). Broadly speaking, I am eager to explore alternative energy futures that draw on scholarship from degrowth, post-development, and post-extractivism to bring about a convivial energy future. My current research consists of exploring the implications of energy transitions in Rajasthan, India for habitat and the lived experiences of the citizenry.

Prior to joining CET, I completed my MPhil at the Centre for Development and the Environment (SUM), at the University of Oslo, where I was also a member of the FME INCLUDE Centre and a student at the Fridtjof Nansens Institute.
