Introduction
2nd year PhD candidate at the University of Edinburgh funded through the UKRI ESRC 1+3 Masters and PhD studentship. My research interests lie in understanding energy injustices emerging with the promotion and use of low carbon energy systems. My PhD seeks to understand the injustices associated with the widespread promotion and uptake of decentralised solar PV systems in Rwanda. This builds on my MRes which examined energy injustices associated with off- grid hydroelectricity in Malawi.

Project
My PhD draws on GIS (to map where solar PV has been identified as the least cost electrification option), interviews (with solar PV users and stakeholders) and policy analysis to identify instances of recognition, procedural and distributional injustice.
