I am an interdisciplinary social scientist who studies the intersection between environmental governance and the global economy.
One area of my work has examined investor-state disputes concerning environmental regulation that are brought to international arbitration under bilateral and regional investment agreements.
Another area of my research focuses on green stimulus/green recovery programs and efforts around the world to launch a Green New Deal (see dedicated research website: www.greennewdealinfo.com)
