About Me

James 2014Hi, I’m James Knuckles. As an academic researcher and consultant, I work at the intersection of business and sustainable international development.

I am in the final year of a Ph.D. in Management at Cass Business School in London, where I research international development supply chains and the social enterprises that participate in them.

As a consultant, my expertise is in the off-grid energy sector (think solar lanterns, solar home systems, and mini-grids). I currently consult for the World Bank’s Energy Sector Management Assistance Program, and have previously worked with the U.S. Department of Energy, a global solar products company, and start-up social enterprises in California, Honduras, and Haiti.

I have a Master of Research from Cass Business School, a dual MBA-Master’s in International Environmental Policy from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, and a BA in Math and French from Bowdoin College.

Thank you for your interest!
