I research the political economy and uneven socio-environmental impacts of China's green development transformation, and the implications of this transformation for other industrializing countries. I am currently working on two projects: one on renewable energy and rural development in China, and another on China’s “green” Belt and Road Initiative in Southeast Asia. A third project, on the nexus of high- and low-carbon frontiers in the U.S. and Australia, is under development for a planned early 2023 launch.
