I am an energy specialist working on global energy-environment issues for more than 30 years. I am a Professor of Energy Economics and Policy and currently, I am the Director of the Institute of Energy and Sustainable Development, De Montfort University, Leicester (UK).

I specialise in multi-disciplinary, applied energy research covering engineering, economic, regulatory and environmental perspectives. I mainly focus on applied, interdisciplinary research on developing economies, with a special emphasis on energy and environmental issues in South and South East Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. I have extensively worked on energy access issues in developing countries over the past decade and successfully led a large applied research project on off-grid electrification in South Asia. I have also provided advice on mini-grid-based electricity access to donor agencies. I have also worked on energy sector management issues such as energy sector regulation and restructuring in developing countries, and policy issues related to reconciling energy security and climate changes, and energy pricing issues.
