PhD Student, Energy and Resources Group, University of California, Berkeley

I am a PhD student in the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California, Berkeley. I research the role of critical minerals in clean energy transitions, with a focus on China and Latin America. I also conduct related research with the Climate Policy Lab in The Fletcher School at Tufts University.

Research Interests

My research uses qualitative and quantitative methods to examine the social, political, and environmental aspects of critical mineral supply chains for energy transitions. This research relates to debates around human-environment geography, environmental sociology, critical energy studies, political ecology, and South-South development cooperation, among other areas.
