Dr Lina Brand Correa


Lina now works at York University, Toronto, Canada - Lina Brand Correa | Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change (yorku.ca).

I joined the University of Leeds as a PhD student in February 2015 before starting a postdoctoral position in March 2018. I did my MSc in Ecological Economics in The University of Edinburgh, and I have a BA in Economics from the National University of Colombia, Medellín Campus.

Research interests

I am currently working on the LiLi (Living Well Within Limits) Project, using participatory workshops to analyse the relationship between energy services and human needs in six different case study countries (UK, Germany, Colombia, Vietnam, Zambia and Nepal). This work builds from my PhD project "Following the 'golden thread': exploring the energy dependency of economies and human well-being".
