My research investigates the multiple ways in which global environmental issues are governed from the global to the local level across the public and private spheres, with a particular focus on questions of politics and the authority. My current projects explore transnational environmental governance (with a focus on the issues of climate change and natural resource extraction) and political pathways to low-carbon transitions. I am the founder and co-leader of the Environmental Governance Working Group at CSU, a multi-disciplinary research community of faculty and graduate students in the College of Liberal Arts and the Warner College of Natural Resources and a member of the Scientific Steering Committee for the Earth System Governance project.
