My research interests are in environment, energy, and natural resource management as well as the determinants and effects of climate policies. I do research on energy transitions, contentious environmental and energy politics, energy justice, climate finance, good governance in energy and natural resource management, resource rights, private and voluntary governance, and public opinion on climate change and environmental policies.
