Alanda Venter

Welcome to my page. I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Economics within the Faculty of Economics and Management Science at the University of Pretoria. I completed my PhD, MPhil, Honours, and undergraduate studies in Economics at the University of Pretoria.

I specialize in the fascinating field of energy and environmental economics with a perspective of institutional and human development economics. My postdoctoral research focuses on the role of institutions within energy inequality. As a researcher, I enjoy exploring problems by asking new and innovative questions and integrating knowledge and techniques to find fresh perspectives and solutions.

I am currently a Youth Ambassador for the International Association For Energy Economics. I was also elected Co-Chair for the PhD and mentorship program at the University of Pretoria in 2023. Through this platform, I aim to share my knowledge, research and insight with fellow professionals and curious minds interested in the intricate dynamics of energy and environmental economics.
