Rohan Agrawal

Research Associate


Rohan is a research associate in the Energy and Environmental Informatics group at the Oxford e-Research Centre. He has a BS Honors in Computer Science (with concentrations in International Relations and Mathematics) from the University of Mississippi. His undergraduate thesis on creating an energy dashboard for the university inspired his current research at Oxford that he intends to develop further. 

He joined the department in January 2022 and has been working on a variety of research projects on energy analytics, food waste, and software R&I landscape in the European Union. Rohan secured a UKRI NERC grant through the Oxford Martin School where he competed with other qualified researchers from various departments. Through this grant, Rohan is trying to analyze the amount of food waste generated at some of the colleges at Oxford and their carbon footprint. 

Outside work, Rohan enjoys reading, running, and listening to space podcasts.

Research Interests

Rohan has a diverse set of research interests – from environmental and climate policy to exoplanets exploration – that he wishes to exploit. In his current project, Rohan is focused on improving the natural gas demand forecasts by using different climate models for more accurate projections. Using more than 50 universities across England and Wales, the research understands the buying strategy for long-term fixed price tariffs. As energy prices rise, this research aims to help universities gain efficient and affordable access to energy.

Current Projects

  • (European Commission H2020) - Understanding the EC and EU-27 Cybersecurity R&I landscape 
  • College Food Waste (UKRI NERC) - Analyzing the carbon footprint of the food waste in Oxford colleges 
  • Energy and Natural Gas Supply Chain – Improving the natural gas demand forecasts to create a purchasing strategy for universities
