Personal profile


Energy poverty, especially in poor communities, is widespread globally. Climate change concerns have brought considerable support for renewable strategies to achieve universal energy access. In the context of rural communities in India, decentralised solar power has emerged as a reliable energy solution, but its adoption faces multifaced barriers under existing settings. My research investigates these barriers and explore pathways for rural communities to transition to clean energy sources to support UN's vision of universal energy access and global climate change mitigation efforts.

My research interests include:

  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Poverty Alleviation and Rural Development
  • Clean Energy Access and Distributed Generation
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Community Engagement for Clean Energy Transition
  • Energy Security and Policies
