UCL Home

The UCL Energy Institute delivers world-leading learning, research and policy support on the challenges of climate change and energy security. Our approach blends expertise from across UCL, to make a truly interdisciplinary contribution to the development of a globally sustainable energy system. We are part of The Bartlett: UCL's global faculty of the built environment.



I am an academic with a strong interest in the application of quantitative methods in fields including energy and the environment. I have worked in the private sector and have acted as a consultant to several institutions and private clients, especially the European Commission and the Department for Energy and Climate Change.  I have a PhD in Economics from Birkbeck College and a MSc in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics from UCL.
