Energy Efficient Cities Initiative

 

Biography

André's PhD Project looks into the Social Logic of Energy Transitions in Indian households, supervised by Dr. Ruchi Choudhary. This project aims to quantify the impact of socio-economic and cultural factors on energy transitions in low to mid income households in the often unequal urban landscapes of Indian cities. He has collected quantitative and quantitative data on energy use practices across southern India and uses unsupervised machine learning methods and mixture modelling to identify the energy use narratives at play in these urban landscapes. The findings from this project will offer engineers and policy makers with valuable insights into the variety of barriers to overcome in delivering clean and reliable energy in Indian cities.

As part of the interdisciplinary research group on Global Energy Nexus in Urban Settlements (GENUS) he has explored methodologies and approaches from different disciplines and sought to include these to bolster the analysis of his data.

André is part of the Future Infrastructure and Built Environment Centre for Doctoral Training (FIBE CDT), and holds an MRes from the FIBE-CDT, as well as an MEng in Mechanical Engineering and Renewable Energy from the University of Edinburgh.
