Adriana Gonzales

Adriana Gonzales is a PhD student at the Energy and Resources Group. Gonzales’ interests includes examining how the responses of local Caribbean communities to energy inequities in the wake of climate change-induced disaster, can be used to reimagine more equitable and sustainable power systems. Gonzales is also interested in working across linguistic regions of the Caribbean to look at the islands most vulnerable to anthropogenic climate change. They have proposed looking at Dominica and Puerto Rico’s energy systems and communities using an interdisciplinary, mixed methods approach.

Prior to joining ERG, Gonzales holds a BA from the University of Chicago. They have also worked for Mathematica Policy Research, Full spectrum doula, and as a Certified Lactation Counselor. Gonzales enjoys adventures and can speak five languages.
