Assistant Professor at Radboud University in The Netherlands
Research Fellow at C-EENRG
NOTE: I have now become Assistant Professor at Radboud University in The Netherlands. I remain affiliated to Cambridge dept of Land Economy, as Research Fellow at C-EENRG, but cannot take on PhD students in Cambridge anymore. I can take on PhD students at Radboud.
Formerly a condensed matter physicist, I lead the Energy Systems Modelling (ESM) research group at 4CMR. Our group research activities concern evaluating projections of global anthropogenic GHG emissions as outcomes of policies, the composition of sectors of technology stemming from the diffusion of innovations, technology transitions and global energy resources. My expertise lies in innovation-diffusion systems, energy, energy commodity markets, emissions and climate change, economics of climate change.
