Pavel Soriano Hernandez

​I am a PhD student in Geography at the University of Victoria and a Research Assistant with Professor Hoicka at the Social Exergy Lab. My research topic is on renewable energy transformations and the impacts they have on local contexts. I have a Bachelor's degree in Physics from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) and a Master's degree in Energy, Society and Sustainability from the University of Edinburgh. Prior to my arrival at UVic, I conducted interdisciplinary research on issues of income and wealth inequality among individuals, families, and companies. Recently my focus shifted to studying energy poverty using energy justice as a theoretical framework and quantitative methods for analyzing this type of poverty in Mexico and other regions or countries.
