I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Technology and Governance for Sustainability at the University of Twente, Netherlands. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology with a minor in Quantitative Methods from Vanderbilt University, U.S.A.


I am interested in how governments, organizations, and social actors perceive and experience energy transitions, cyber-physical systems, and innovation. More specifically, my research agenda focuses on the following areas: 

1. understanding and governing privacy, sustainability, and equity within the cyber-physical systems in the transportation and energy industries


 2. the applicability of energy decentralization projects and the social significance of energy democracy; 

3. various causal relationships between corporate sustainability and corporate directorships.
