Research interests

Main research interests:

  • International cooperation, institutions, and IOs.
  • Global environmental and energy politics.
  • Climate policy, carbon markets, enviornmental regulation.
  • International political economy.
  • Formal modelling.
  • Quantitative political methodology.

My research focuses on central questions in international cooperation and the political economy of environmental and energy politics. I am particularly interested in understanding the relationship between domestic and international politics. Current projects include formal and quantitative work on multilateral agreements, government-firm interaction in carbon markets, and international climate pledges. A co-authored book on energy poverty is forthcoming with MIT Press.

My work was published or is forthcoming with the Journal of PoliticsJournal of Conflict ResolutionReview of International OrganizationsEnergy Economics, and Science Advances. I have written for the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage, VoxDev, or ISEP Policy Briefs, and my work has been covered by The Economist.
