"He not busy being born is busy dying"
- Bob Dylan
These interdisciplinary research interests come together under the theoretical gaze of Ecological Political Economy. This means I study the complex interactions between political economic structures and the environment, and I aim to research this relationship both at a theoretical level and through critical qualitative analyses and empirical case studies. My research has thus waded into a range of topical areas (sustainable transportation, energy and climate policy, and more recently agro-ecology and protein foods), all from the point of view of political economy, and with an underlying interest in helping to understand and foster a just transition to a sustainable economy both in Canada and globally. I have examined case studies involving Alberta's bituminous sands, high-speed rail development; nuclear energy; and livestock production, and I am currently involved in projects examining "sustainable protein", the "aviation and climate change" and "green growth".
