Research Groups

I am currently co-leading a research project on sectoral decarbonization in the U.S., China, and India.

I have been part of two Department of Defense funded projects on climate change and national security funded under their Minerva Initiative. The first Climate Change and African Political Stability (CCAPS) was a five-year, $7.6 million project that ended in 2015. The second Complex Emergencies and Political Stability in Asia (CEPSA) is a 3-year, roughly $1.9 million project that extended in to 2017. I was also the principal investigator of CEPSA.

I also led three year-long MA research projects for clients, one on sectoral greenhouse gas mitigation opportunities in the major economies, another on global wildlife trafficking, and a third on climate security in Oceania. The blog sites for the class have videos, reports, and blog posts from the students and me that are a fantastic resource.
