I am a political economist researching sustainability innovation and policy for long-term socio-technical transformations. I focus on complex innovation systems at the intersection of clean-tech and artificial intelligence. These so-called multi-technology innovations tap into various policy domains and span across different economic networks and industries, especially in the energy and mobility sectors. My work combines insights from innovation studies, political economy, and policy analysis. I have been a consultant for projects related to green technologies, innovation policy, and industrial strategy.
Currently, I am a researcher and Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Public Policy at University College London (UCL STEaPP), fully funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council. At UCL, I also teach on the MPA programme and co-supervise Master's projects. I hold a B.Sc. from the London School of Economics and an M.Phil. from the University of Oxford, where I was a member of St. Antony's College. I speak English, German, Spanish, reasonable French and Portuguese, and some Russian. For queries regarding collaborations, consultancy, or details about my CV, please contact me directly.
