Anna Carolina Martins is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Campinas in Brazil. She was a visiting researcher at CEENRG in the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge, in November-December 2022. She is also a supervising lecturer in the specialisation course in Data Analysis at the University of São Paulo campus ESALQ.

The aim of her research is to understand what the possible barriers are to financing the development of new renewable electricity generation technologies to replace existing ones, especially how the economic agents involved in this process make their investment and financing decisions. To this end, Anna applies an agent-based model adapted to the evolution and complexity theory.

Anna is part of the Economics of Energy Innovation Systems Transition (EEIST) project team. She holds a Master’s degree in Applied Economics from the Federal University of Ouro Preto and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Montes Claros. She was a part of the winning team that represented Brazil in the Global Management Challenge in 2020 and 2021.
