Emily Ghosh is a Staff Scientist in the Equitable Transitions program at the Stockholm Environment Institute’s U.S. Center. Here, she focuses on assessing the equity and environmental justicedimensions of the sustainability transition, and on developing climate change mitigation plans and policies that are equitable and just. Most of her research involves quantitative analysis through the development of long-term energy and economic models. She also studies alternative economic paradigms (such as degrowth and green growth), the energy-water-food nexus, and gender issues in energy planning.
Before joining SEI in 2016, Emily worked at the global engineering consulting firm, WSP, as a process engineer in the water and wastewater sector. Emily has significant experience in managing and designing multi-million-dollar engineering projects for water and wastewater infrastructure, such as the redesign of the sanitary system at New York’s LaGuardia Airport’s Central Terminal. She also has expertise in energy management and resource recovery initiatives at wastewater facilities, including the design of treatment systems to harness the energy potential of biosolids to generate clean energy.
Emily has a BASc in chemical and environmental engineering from the University of Toronto and an MSc in environmental technology, specializing in global environmental change and policy, from Imperial College London.
