I am using Client Side Rendering with JSLink in SharePoint 2013. How to get the email address of Logged in User using JS Link? I was trying to use Ctx.CurrentUser.Email which returns undefined.

Try this

<script type="text/javascript">
    var currentUser;
    function init(){
        this.clientContext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
        this.oWeb = clientContext.get_web();
        currentUser = this.oWeb.get_currentUser();
        this.clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this,this.onQuerySucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this,this.onQueryFailed));

    function onQuerySucceeded() {

    function onQueryFailed(sender, args) {
        alert('Request failed. \nError: ' + args.get_message() + '\nStackTrace: ' + args.get_stackTrace());
