Radhika Khosla | Fellow


Radhika Khosla is a Fellow at CPR. 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 behavioural 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.

Radhika is a Visiting Scholar at MIT’s Energy Initiative, and a Visiting Scholar at the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy, University of Pennsylvania in the fall of 2017. Her other appointments include the India Fellow for the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development at Somerville College, University of Oxford. Prior to being at CPR, she was Staff Scientist with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in New York, where she led research and implementation on building energy policies in Indian states. She has also been the Welch Fellow at NRDC's Center for Market Innovation, and worked with The Energy and Research Institute, The Climate Group, and the Center for Advanced Study of India at UPenn.

Radhika holds a PhD in the Geophysical Sciences from the University of Chicago and an undergraduate and master’s degrees in Physics from the University of Oxford.
