Graduate Student Sustainable Energy College of Global Futures
Trained as an economist, Mokshda received her master’s and bachelor’s degree in economics from Mumbai University in India. While her motivating research question relates to understanding the process of policy design, the mainstay of her research interests lies in the justice and equity implications of the clean energy transition. Prior to beginning her PhD, she spent two years working with an energy policy think tank in India, on issues related to consumer advocacy, regulatory governance and energy systems modelling. Currently her dissertation research focuses on how policies that are furthering the clean energy transition are addressing energy and environmental justice.
