Research Interests

I am interested in all things climate change, environment, and sustainability. My work focuses on three areas: population growth/stabilization/decrease & sustainability, challenges to free expression in the context of informational conflicts, and intergenerational distributive justice. I aim to contribute to the development of an equitable and effective human response to climate change.
