Caroline White-Nockleby

Caroline studies the politics and materialities of energy transitions. Her dissertation tracks the designs and debates that are emerging around projects to build novel energy storage infrastructures in Chile and California and how such projects, in turn, shape the qualities of renewable energies as resources. Her dissertation is supported by a 2022-23 International Dissertation Research Fellowship from the Social Science Research Council and by the MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives (MISTI).

Caroline was a 2020-21 fellow at the MIT Digital Humanities Lab and a 2021-22 Energy Fellow with the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI). Her research has been published in the journals Social Studies of Science and Wetlands, as well as in the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative white paper series. Before coming to HASTS, Caroline worked on environmental justice projects at organizations in the Northeast U.S. and the Andes region of Latin America. She holds a B.A. in Geosciences and American Studies from Williams College and an M.Phil in Social Anthropology from the University of Cambridge, and was also a 2018 Fulbright Scholar in Chile.
