Shyamasree Dasgupta is pursuing her Ph.D. at the Department of Economics, Jadavpur University, Kolkata as a SYLFF (The Ryoichi Sasakawa Young Leaders’ Fellowship Fund) Doctoral Fellow. Her thesis is entitled “Response of Indian Industries to Sustainability Goals: An Economic Analysis with special reference to National Action Plan on Climate Change”. She did her M.Phil in Economics from Jadavpur University in 2010 and her Masters in Economics from Delhi School of Economics in 2006. Her research primarily focuses on multilevel mitigation policy analysis and an assessment of the potential for low carbon growth of the energy intensive industries in India. She focuses on how policies and governance trigger behavioral response of such industries to reduce their energy use and emission in the long run. She has worked as a researcher in various collaborative research projects related to climate change, energy efficiency and several other policy issues. Given this she deeply appreciates the fact that while climate change is a global problem, the solution is embedded in the interface of global, national and local level policy and governance. She has publications in national and international peer reviewed journals and edited volumes and has overseas research and conference participation experience.
