A.R. (Aashis) Joshi


I am a PhD candidate in the Ethics and Philosophy of Technology and the Energy and Industry sections at the TPM faculty at TU Delft. In my research I use agent-based modelling to explore the societal conditions and processes that are conducive to achieving resilient and just climate adaptations for differentially capable actors. With the models I attempt to operationalize the principles of ethics and justice that are relevant in a given adaptation context as actor responsibilities, and evaluate their effects on well-being and social equity.

I have a master’s degree in energy and environmental engineering from the Erasmus Mundus consortium of the Queen’s University of Belfast, the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and the Institut Mines-Télécom in Nantes, France, and a bachelor’s degree in chemical and environmental engineering from Dartmouth College, United States.


Aashis’s research focuses on using agent-based modelling to shed light on responsibility arrangements and policies for climate change adaptation which are effective, impart resilience to communities, and are ethically just.
