In addressing the risks of the climate and environment change, "cross-disciplinary" work is seen as essential; but how can this be done well? How do lots of disparate thinkers and organisations work cohesively together? is it possible? It now emerges that even this may not be enough - transdisciplinary thinking is required.
In my research, I consider which disciplines and sectors are best positioned to solve discrete parts of the problem, and how they might do so in a synergistic way. I am particularly interested in applying arts and humanities based approaches to climate change communication and conceptualization, and the security dimensions of climate change.
