‘Conceptualizing Inter-household Energy Exchanges’

My research explores the convergence of design and anthropology, specifically in the application context of energy transitions. At a broad level, my work contributes towards the development of the sub-discipline of design anthropology. One of the reasons why I am happy about this award is that it brings attention to our (IDE’s) research amongst anthropologists.
