Research Fellow for New Tools and Framework
Damiete is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Environment and Sustainability, University of Surrey. Her research interests are sustainable energy system analysis and social research with the view to support sustainable energy policies and strategies. As a researcher, she has developed and applied sustainable assessment frameworks to renewable energy chains, helped to evaluate the evolution of low carbon transition pathways and have designed and coordinated several stakeholder workshops. For her PhD, she developed the Resilience and Livelihoods in Supply Chains (RELISC) framework, which can holistically assess the impact of pertinent contextual factors such as supply chain structure/governance, institutional governance, five capital availability, vulnerability contexts and actor decisions on the development and resilience of emerging sectors. At EnergyREV, she is currently developing and refining pathways to the upscaling of Smart local Energy Systems (SLES) based on a transition map derived from causal links in literature and expert analysis from participatory workshops and interviews.
