My research examines the politically disruptive potential of global climate change and the principles, policies, and values bearing on efforts to address it. My current project — entitled Before Collapse: A Political Theory of Climate Catastrophe — defends an account of climate justice that prioritizes the prevention of catastrophe. Developing insights from scientific, economic, and policy-based research, I argue for immediate and extensive mitigation and (anticipatory) adaptation efforts, and the establishment of a global compensation fund for climate-related loss and damage.

Alongside my work on climate justice, I am pursuing several smaller projects in critical race theory, contemporary analytic philosophy, and classical Greek thought.
