I am an Ecological Economist, holding three honours degrees and one degree by research and am a member of Pi Sigma Alpha, the United States Political Science honors society.


My work focuses on the political economy of knowledge in environmental governance, with concentrations in the areas of ecological political economy, institutional aspects of ecosystems services valuation, green constitutional theory, legitimacy of environmental policies; the role of science (and scientists) in sustainable development; and the role of time and tradition in processes and principles of ecological economic production.
