Dr. Idalina Baptista


I commenced DPhil studies during the Michaelmas Term in 2017 after completing the MSc in Major Programme Management at Oxford's Said Business School. I am currently a Senior Manager in Ernst & Young's Strategy practice focused on advising clients in the energy industry. I have over a decade of energy experience in many contexts, including nuclear power plant operations on both land and sea, gas centrifuge uranium enrichment in the deserts of New Mexico, oil & gas exploration and production in the Alaskan Arctic, and renewable energy strategy and development throughout the U.S.
