Nickhil is a 29-year-old Energy Engineer from Delhi/Bangalore, India. He has lived in India, Sweden and the Netherlands and is currently pursuing a PhD at the UEA, Norwich, England. Prior to this, he has worked as a business lead for a Swedish e-commerce platform working for small and medium businesses in Sweden and India. He provides consultancy on customer journeys, user research, product-market fit, user experience and digital marketing. He also has worked extensively in the not-for-profit sector.
During his PhD, through an EU-funded Research Project on smart energy, technology and people, he hopes to explore the social justice implications of AI-enabled smart home technologies through qualitative research. He has a Master’s in sustainable development, where he pursued research around circular economy, sustainable urban futures, renewable energy policies, and sustainable electricity production. One of his most rewarding experiences was working with the local transport authority in Gothenburg, Sweden, and other stakeholders in the transportation sector to understand and envision the future of sustainable transportation in that part of the world. He hopes for an integrated, green, equitable and accessible future for all, and most importantly hopes that people realize the true environmental cost of their actions.
