Grant R. McDermott is an economics PhD at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH). His major academic interests lie in the fields of environmental and resource economics, particularly energy use and climate change. It was this interest that first lured him away from his home in sunny South Africa to beautiful (but less sunny) Norway. He received his undergraduate degrees in business science and economics from the University of Cape Town, and spent some years working and travelling in various countries before completing an MSc at NHH in 2011. He enjoys reasonably priced wine, long walks on the beach and talking in the third person.
Grant is a 2013 Energy Collective Future Energy Fellow.
