My primary research interrogates pressing issues at the intersection of environmental theory and practice, including catastrophic climate change, environmental racism, and climate disobedience. In working on these issues, I engage diverse literatures within political theory and across disciplines. For instance, I draw on Buddhist ethics to expose problems with geo-engineering, economics research to develop a new principle for distributing international climate burdens, and anti-speciesist theory to unpack the historical foundations of white supremacism. I also pursue work in the history of political thought and race theory, which has yielded several publications.

I am currently working on a book project entitled "Before Collapse: A Political Theory of Climate Catastrophe." You can read more about it here.
The following is a list of article-length projects I am currently pursuing, at various stages in the production process.
