Bio/Research

My research interests span economic geography, environmental studies, and development studies. I conduct research in both the ‘developing’ and ‘developed’ world, and consequently have an interest in debates over postcolonialism and development.

The two primary areas of focus for my current research on are: (i) market instruments in environmental management; and (ii) water governance (current projects on water security, water privatization; and delegated water management). I am also beginning a new project on food security, focusing on the nexus between food and water security.

As a researcher committed to interdisciplinarity, I collaborate with natural, social and medical scientists across a range of disciplines; I am currently leading a large-scale, interdisciplinary project on water security (www.watersecurity.ca).
