Rihab is an interdisciplinary researcher in sustainable energy consumption and demand management, focusing on socio-technical approaches to sustainable transitions. In particular, she is interested in gendered energy and space use in the Global South. Her work takes a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the urban energy landscape, amalgamating socio-cultural theories with more technically grounded understandings of consumption in the context of architectural and urban spaces. Rihab is committed to problem-driven research to tackle societal challenges, to improve energy efficiency and sufficiency to meet climate change targets. She is currently a Newton Trust Research Fellow at Lucy Cavendish College, University of Cambridge.
