Senior Lecturer


Main research: 

  • International Environmental politics
  • EU climate policy

Current research: 

My research interests focus on the interaction between the international and the domestic levels of climate governance, and between economic and environmental objectives in climate policy. More specifically, my research has focused on mitigation targets, mitigation policy instruments, climate finance and fossil fuel subsidy reform. Currently, I am currently undertaking research concerning how international economic institutions (such as the G20 and the OECD) and domestic finance ministries have influenced international climate politics. Besides this research project, I have undertaken research on EU climate politics, including the EU reduction targets, contributions to climate finance and ETS reform.
