RESEARCH & FACILITATION

Cracking sustainability challenges of our times require long-term critical research engagement recognizing the diversity and inequalities involved.

 

Informed by fieldwork in Latin America, Southeast Asia and the international policy level, my work explores the intersections and frontiers

of social equity and environmental sustainability.
