Bio, Publications

My interests are in global environmental problems, broadly defined, with my particular technical expertise in biodiversity conservation and climate change. I am primarily interested in how individuals and households respond to changes in the physical environment, and how their responses are shaped by external policies and other constraints.

Specialties: Primary academic research focus includes adaptation to climate change in vulnerable areas; policy tools for climate change solutions in developing countries (especially REDD+); socio-economics of biodiversity conservation; international poverty, environment and development nexus; and environmental security and environmental impacts of war and conflict.
