Research Summary

I am an interdisciplinary researcher whose research expands in areas of energy transition, energy resilience, low-carbon energy innovation, bioeconomy, sustainable cooling, and gender. My long-term research interest lies in the nexus of international development, energy, and gender. I am currently working at the Centre for Sustainable Cooling at the University of Birmingham as a Research Fellow and using a whole system approach to identify the current and future challenges of the cooling sector. My PhD journey started at the Institute of Sustainable Resources (ISR) in Jan 2022 under the supervision of Dr. Jim Watson and Dr. Julia Tomei.  


My PhD focuses on how energy transition is working as a catalyst to close the gender gap by creating spaces for women to engage in entrepreneurial activities within the energy system. I am particularly interested in understanding how the post-structuralist perspectives help in exploring the production and reproduction of power relations in the entrepreneurial process. Additionally, I want to explore how the feminist approach can be used in highlighting the discursive biases in overlooking women’s economic contribution in the energy sector as entrepreneurs and innovators and looking at them just as end-users, customers and beneficiaries. Through my PhD research I want to understand how women’s active participation, decision making and leadership role in energy technology and product innovation and diffusion can be a means of economic and social legitimation.
