Personal profile


My research and teaching are motivated by a deep concern for the state of the environment and the political, economic and social institutions that produce and sustain degrading human and planetary relations. I have explored this through the role and relationship between knowledge, power and environmental action in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and collaboratively with Dr Alice Vadrot in the the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), conceptualising these global assessment bodies as sites where negotiations of climate change and biodiversity start. My research is informed by the sociology of Pierre Bourdieu and I am particularly interested in the reproduction of social order and the methodological innovation and the ethical stakes of undertaking this form of scholarship.
