In this context, your Ph.D. will address the urgency to leverage sector coupling to build less carbon intensive future by exploring most relevant innovations relating to electrification, hydrogen mobility and studying them in relation to the capabilities of existing energy system. Results from this Ph.D. project aim to support energy transition and sustainable mobility.

Specific attention will be given to the behavioral component of this transition where you will have an opportunity to study intended adoption and social acceptance of new technologies, modes, and innovations relating to transport and energy sectors.

You will be a part of the Energy and Industry Section in the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management. You will be supervised by Dr. Natalia Barbour and Prof.dr.ir. Margot Weijnen. Throughout your Ph.D., your will be given opportunities to supervise masters students, collaborate with academic and industry partners, and develop your professional portfolio.
