My research interests are trans-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary and international in scope, spanning geography, environmental science and cognate disciplines. They include the governance of sustainable development and climate change, earth and climate processes, climate change mitigation, adaptation and resilience, environmental (geo)politics, constructions of climate knowledge, the political economy of the state and the scale debate in human geography.
I am currently the Principal Investigator on a British Academy/BEIS funded project at the moment entitled ‘A New Civil Politics of Climate Change? An examination of contemporary climate communication, actions and policies in the UK’ (with Andy Jonas (Hull) and Candice Howarth (LSE))
