Anjali Ramakrishnan is a Researcher in the project on Inclusive Green Transitions for Sustainable Development in the Global South, based at the EfD Global Hub.
Previously, her research focused on examining social status as a demand-side factor for consumption choices of urban Indian households and understanding its implications for climate change mitigation targets. She used large household datasets and primary survey data to establish a link between status and consumption patterns and practices using econometrics methods. In a policy role, Anjali has worked in projects on rural energy access, fossil fuel subsidies, coal pricing in India and India's INDC policies with policy think tanks including The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) in New Delhi.
Her research interests include energy economics and policy, households' energy transitions, demand-side research using empirical economic analysis, and reconciling science-policy nexus.
She completed her Master's in Economics from TERI University, New Delhi (2012), and Bachelor's in Economics from Jesus and Mary College, Delhi University. She also cleared the University Grants Commission National Eligibility Test (UGC NET) in 2012. Anjali is a recipient of the DAAD Research Scholarship for her Ph.D. studies in Germany since 2017.
