Fields of Study
My research is on international relations and methodology with a focus on environmental cooperation. My dissertation is on the political economy of international climate change politics, especially how economic globalization interacts with international political cooperation on climate change mitigation. I am currently exploring how income levels are related to country-level production and consumption of greenhouse gas emissions, as well as how notions of fairness interact with political context and economic cost in determining popular support for international climate agreements among U.S. citizens.
