Centre for Policy Research in India
Radhika Khosla is a fellow at the Centre for Policy Research in India. She works on the integrated nature of India’s energy sector to examine the linkages between energy, development and climate change, particularly in urban areas. She also focuses on the demand-side of Indian energy, with attention to the technological, institutional and behavioral aspects of energy use and its lock-in to a rapidly growing built environment. In addition, her work examines the analytic and strategic dimensions of India’s energy and climate policies. Khosla is a visiting scholar at MIT’s Energy Initiative and her other appointments include the India Fellow for the India Centre for Sustainable Development at the University of Oxford. She was the staff scientist with the Natural Resources Defense Council in New York, where she led research and implementation on building energy policies in Indian states.
Khosla holds a Ph.D. in geophysical sciences from the University of Chicago and an undergraduate and master’s degree in physics from the University of Oxford.
