  • Profile

    Nina is a PhD candidate in the Governance and Inclusive Development (GID) programme group of the AISSR. She has a background in Cultural Anthropology and International Development Studies holding a MA degree from the University of Vienna and a BA degree from the University of Frankfurt a.M. She has strong interests and professional experience in the field of inclusive and sustainable infrastructure development and service delivery addressing unequal power relations with a particular focus on Southern Africa.

    Nina works on the role of multinationals and relevant agents of change in leaving fossil fuels underground (LFFU). This PhD is part of a larger project which will address the role of big investors in LFFU, the North-South implications of LFFU, and the necessary measures to be adopted to equitably allocate and accelerate the responsibilities of shareholders and stakeholders in energy transformation. Applying a comparative and transdisciplinary case study approach, the project team will combine institutional analysis with an innovative theoretical model for inclusive development.

    Her PhD project is part of the Advanced Grant to Joyeeta Gupta for the project CLIFF (Climate Change and Fossil Fuel) which has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (contract number 101020082).
