My research focuses on the creation and operation of institutions for environmental and sustainable development governance. This research connects to issues in international relations, political science, and public policy theory of how institutions are built and maintained, and the effectiveness of cooperative arrangements across governance scales. I am primarily conducting empirical research in three topical areas: i) global politics of sustainable development; ii) global and regional management of hazardous substances and wastes; and iii) global and regional climate change action. To date, my main regional focus has been Europe and North America. In the near-term, I will focus more on multilevel governance issues.
