Anurag Panda

Post-doctoral Policy Fellow

Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi

Research Interest:

Anurag is interested in understanding how India’s formal and informal industrial sectors are transforming in the context of climate challenge. Currently he is studying the role of public policy in helping Indian firms adapt to the international market demand for low-carbon technologies.


Anurag did his PhD at the University of Michigan (UM), Ann Arbor, where he studied the physics of third-generation semiconductors, now used in improved solar cells and LEDs. He then did a postdoc at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he led a research program to prototype third-generation solar technology and to deploy them to increase irrigation access for farmers in India. In the past he has been involved in many last-mile energy access efforts, both in India and Ghana. Both at UM and MIT Anurag was an active participant in numerous public policy courses and student groups.
