Lina Brand Correa is EUC’s new faculty member in the field of ecological economics. Her research interests include the impact of energy systems on climate change, energy return on investment, energy (service) requirements for the satisfaction of human needs, the impact of provisioning systems on well-being and the democratic implications of climate action.

She completed her PhD, “Following the ‘golden thread’: Exploring the energy dependency of economies and human well-being,” at the University of Leeds, received an MSc (with distinction) in ecological economics at the University of Edinburgh and a BA in economics from the National University of Colombia, Medellín campus. She has used innovative participatory workshops to analyze the relationship between energy services and human needs in different case study countries, including Colombia, Zambia, Nepal and the U.K.
