Aoife holds a joint appointment between the Smith School and the Saïd Business School. This appointment is a unique collaboration between the two schools, offering current and future opportunities for joint research, teaching and executive education. Aoife's research focuses on what systemic environmental challenges such as the climate crisis, and associated system transitions, mean for business. She focuses on understanding the new business models and forms of collaboration between different organizations (public, private and non-profit) that are required to support sustainable system transformations. Her work spans a range of contexts including research on utilities in the energy transition, sustainable districts, circular economy, and energy access in sub-Saharan Africa. She co-directs the Global Opportunities and Threats Oxford (GOTO) programme for the MBAs in Oxford, and she is developing several executive education initiatives on climate action as integrated components of her research. Aoife was previously a senior researcher at the Group for Sustainability and Technology (SusTec) at ETH in Zurich. She received her PhD from the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge and her MA from the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University.
