I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at the University of North Florida, an Honorary Fellow at the Southasia Institute of Advanced Studies in Nepal, and a Research Fellow of the Earth System Governance Project. My research focuses on environmental law and policy in general, and 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. and Ph.D. in Political Science from UC Irvine. My work has appeared in Critical Discourse Studies, International Environmental Agreements, Journal of Environmental Law and Litigation, Journal of Human Rights and the Environment, Review of Policy Research, and Sustainability Science. I run Enviro Rights Map, a Google maps-based resource which catalogs constitutional environmental rights throughout the world. My hobbies include cooking, blogging about green design, and running half-marathons.
