About

I am a Canada Research Chair in Economy and Environment and Assistant Professor in the School of Environmental Studies and Department of Global Development Studies at Queen’s University. I completed my PhD at the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM), Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (2008). I also hold a Master’s degree in environmental science and law from the University of Nottingham (2002) and a Bachelor of Science in environmental science, with a minor in political science, from the University of British Columbia (2001).


My most recent book Green Keynesianism and the Global Financial Crisis (Routledge, 2018) explores the experience of Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, and the United States with green stimulus programs following the 2008 global financial crisis.
