ENERGY, ENVIRONMENTAL AND INSTITUTIONAL ECONOMIST AND RESEARCHER
Alanda Venter

Welcome to my Page. I am a PhD student in the Department of Economics within the Faculty of Economics and Management Science at the University of Pretoria. I completed my undergraduate, honours and MPhil in Economics at the University of Pretoria.

I am specializing in the fascinating field of energy and environmental economics. My current field of study focuses on how institutions affect the electricity sector and assist in combating climate change’s effects on human development. As a researcher, I enjoy looking into problems by asking new and innovative questions as well as integrating knowledge and techniques in order to find fresh perspectives and solutions.

I am currently a Youth Ambassador for the International Association For Energy Economics. I am 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.
