I am Postdoctoral Fellow at the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies and a Lecturer at the Department of Political Science at Yale University. I am currently lecturing on ‘The Ethics of Climate Change’ and on ‘Markets and Morals’. I am also affiliated at the Governance, Environment and Climate Initiative at Yale. My current research focuses on climate justice and development, as well as on the ethics of carbon pricing. I am particularly interested in climate justice and its relation to climate policy. My forthcoming book (2018) – titled ‘Justice in a Non-Ideal World’ – focuses on the connection between ideal political principles and their realization in the real-world.
