My research focus is environmental politics and behavior. One strand of work focuses on the international relations of global environmental cooperation. The second focuses on individual environmental behavior, with a focus on water conservation and sustainability literacy.  My interest in teaching has also led to projects on sustainability literacy and graduate student pedagogy.  Some ongoing projects and recent publications are listed below:
