Habiba is an associate within the Africa Energy Program, based in Nigeria. She supports RMI’s efficient demand stimulation efforts in Nigeria through encouraging the productive use of energy to enable local economic development.


Prior to joining RMI, Habiba was a senior associate at the Boston Consulting Group Lagos office, where she worked on a range of projects in the energy and public sectors. Before that, she completed my PhD in energy systems modeling at Imperial College London. Her research focused on national electricity systems planning for the UK and Nigeria, to understand how to deliver the Paris Agreement in those countries. Along the way, she has advised the UK Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy on its carbon dioxide removal programs and co-authored a couple of books on the same topic.
