I am an interdisciplinary social scientist who studies the intersection between environmental governance and the global economy.
I am 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.
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)
