Academic Research

I am proud to have contributed to the academic literature on environmental sustainability through chapters to the following two e-books:

In Energy Management and the Environment: Challenges and the Future, I examine the feasibility of energy conservation strategies.

My chapter “Environmental Sustainability through Human Intellectual Capital” appears in the book Emerging Dimensions of Environmental Sustainability, which was published by the Centre for Innovative Management at the Athabasca University.
