My research focuses on global energy and climate policy and the role different actors (governments, business and civil society) play at different levels to shape global outcomes. I work at the intersection of global governance, regulation, negotiation studies and environmental politics.
My research aims to improve international outcomes on two of the most critical challenges facing the world; climate change and energy security, and in doing so provide strategies for policymakers and diplomats to influence global outcomes.
