Komal studied resource dependency of clean energy technologies such as wind turbines and electric vehicles under current and future framework conditions, where her primary focus has been on critical resources such as rare earth elements. Her research work comprised resource criticality assessment in technology perspective, mapping the flows and stocks of critical resources, and evaluating the processing efficiencies of waste electrical & electronic equipment (WEEE) treatment facilities. Her current research interests include: resource and waste management, material and energy flow analysis from micro- to macro-scale and exploring resource dependency of future clean energy systems.
