My research seeks to examine the role of (environmental) science in society, the science-policy interface, the politics of knowledge co-production, mobilization and application, and new modes of environmental governance. My research is mostly situated in the interpretive social sciences and my theoretical orientation is interdisciplinary, drawing from science studies, post-structuralist political theory, and pragmatism. My areas of focus are forestry, biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation.
