I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, Irvine and an Honorary Fellow at the Southasia Institute of Advanced Studies in Kathmandu, Nepal. My research focuses on environmental law and policy in general, and constitutional environmental rights in particular. I hold a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Florida, an M.A. in Climate and Society from Columbia University, and an M.A. in Political Science from UC Irvine. My work has appeared in International Environmental Agreements, Journal of Environmental Law and Litigation, Review of Policy Research, and Sustainability Science. My hobbies include playing the guitar, blogging about green design, and running half-marathons. In August 2014, I will be joining the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at the University of North Florida as a tenure-track Assistant Professor of International Relations.
