Inaugural Cornell RANA Prize winner tackles energy issues in Indonesia

Timothy Ravis, whose research focuses on uncovering the social, political, and economic impediments to a green energy transition in Indonesia, is the first RANA Prize winner at Cornell.

The Ronny Adhikarya Niche Award (RANA) recognizes Global Development graduate students pursuing innovative thinking in their studies and careers. Ravis, a Ph.D. student in development studies, envisions a carbon-neutral world which, through reforms to the energy transition process, is more just, equitable, and peaceful.

“The RANA Prize rewards innovative thinking and those who are eager to explore the unexplored in their intellectual pursuits,” said Lori Leonard, professor and chair of the Department of Global Development in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. “We are thrilled to recognize Tim Ravis with this award and are thankful for Ronny Adhikarya and Mee-Ching for establishing this visionary prize in Global Development.”
