Nicholas Beuret is a lecturer at the University of Essex whose research focuses on the environmental politics of climate change and resource use. His work explores how environmental issues are produced as sociotechnical matters of concern and how they function to shape political practices and imaginaries. Interrogating the construction of environmental agency and its modalities, his current research focuses on the environmental politics of climate change and resource use, emerging energy infrastructure, the commons, extinction and the catastrophic imaginary.
