I am a senior fellow at the Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy and the Environment at the University of Colorado Law School, and I am affiliated with the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research at CU. My research interests focus on international environmental governance, the politics of science, and the ethical implications of environmental issues, particularly in the context of global climate change. My recent work has involved the role of the U.S. courts in shaping climate policy, linkages between climate change and human rights, decision rules in the UNFCCC process, and the role of universities in promoting collaborations and building capacities with the developing world.
