My current research centers on the politics, political economy and political ecology of climate change mitigation, with a particular focus on negative emissions / carbon removal. The research projects that I am part of for example study the politics of modelling negative emissions in integrated assessment models; the assumptions underpinning projections of large-scale carbon removal; the extent and form in which these are being taken up by policy makers in different countries; and the various narratives and imaginaries about negative emissions that are being produced by corporations, policy makers and in civil society. My research also investigates the implementation of specific carbon removal projects, through technologies ranging from 'natural climate solutions' such as perennial agriculture and large-scale tree planting, to bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) and direct air capture (DAC). This involves, for example, examining the political and economic conditions for project implementation across different geographies and the political economy of project development and finance. A key theme running through my research is the question of climate justice.
