Teaching

I have been teaching since 2019, before I graduated from my PhD. I have really enjoyed teaching processes and meeting new students/people from different background and countries. If you want to learn, you have to teach. Teaching something new is challenging and fun at all times. I enjoy learning and sharing knowledge with others.. the beauty of teaching..

PhD Journey & Experiences

PhD is tough, yet it is fun when you know what you can do during your “period of procrastination”.

Procrastination does not always mean bad for PhDs as long as they know they procrastinate for something to add value to their PhD experiences.  I did procrastinate lots lots and lots.

For me, PhD is the best decision I have made in my career life. Yes, PhD can be tough, but it can also be so fun! I have found my PhD journey has been giving me so much time to do lots of things that I could have never done if I was still working for companies.

About Me

My research focuses on the energy transition and centres on economics, accounting and legislation for environmental sustainability. I have work experience from across the energy sector, working for international energy companies (CNOOC and Husky), global accountants and consultancies (EY) and international institutions (the Energy Charter Secretariat). Currently I am a researcher at the Centre for Energy, Petroleum, and Mineral Law & Policy (CEPMLP), University of Dundee where I finished my PhD in 2019. I am also a tutor at the University of St. Andrews (UK), and Visiting Lecturer at Universidade Eduardo Mondlane (UEM) in Mozambique.
