I am Lecturer in Global Energy and Climate Policy at the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy (CISD) and convene CISD’s MSc degree of the same name together with Dr. Dan Plesch. I am also a Research Fellow at the Global Governance Project at Amsterdam University and a Member of the Centre on the Politics of Energy Security (CEPES) at SOAS where I contribute to a FP7-funded project on energy security in Asia.
My main teaching and research interests lie at the intersection of energy and climate policy. I am particularly interested in multi-level climate and energy governance, legislation and regulation in the EU, the US and newly industrialized countries, low-carbon energy technologies, energy markets and pricing developments. My work is largely located within (global) public policy and as such connects elements of political science, political economy, policy analysis and international affairs.
I received an M.A. in Political Science from Dresden University of Technology (TUD) in 2006 and gained a PhD from UCL’s School of Public Policy (SPP) in 2011 with a thesis explaining the adoption of energy and climate change policies in U.S. states. Before coming to London I acquired policy experience working for a number of organisations and foundations active in environmental protection and conservation, international development assistance and foreign relations.
Between 2008 to 2010 I worked as a freelance consultant for the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), specializing in R&D and business innovation. I contributed to projects commissioned by the UK Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and Oracle.
