BIOGRAPHY

Dr Maria Sharmina is Lecturer in Energy and Project Management at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, University of Manchester. In 2014 she obtained an ESRC Nexus grant to investigate how energy, food and water are connected in the UK policy-development process. She has also worked on a range of other funded projects including: the EPSRC's Shipping in Changing Climates project; the 'Designing Sustainable Supply Chains' project sponsored by a major retailer; and, a project identifying research methods for modelling energy and water demand funded by University of Manchester Research Institute. Through the University’s Researchers into Management programme (accredited by the Institute of Leadership & Management), Maria has developed skills in research project management, team leadership and strategic planning. Previously she completed her PhD within the Tyndall Centre. Prior to that she did a Master’s programme in Economics at Central European University, combining it with research at the Center for Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Policy (Budapest, Hungary) and in the Institute of Energy Research at Joanneum Research (Graz, Austria). Maria obtained her first degree at the Far-Eastern National University (Vladivostok, Russia) specialising in Global Economy and International Management, graduating 'summa cum laude'.
