Research Areas

I study politics in the biofuel industries of Brazil and the US, looking specifically at: (1) the political economy of ethanol development; (2) the conflicts that have emerged surrounding cellulosic ethanol technologies; (3) how new forms of expertise are emerging across a 'multi-level' policy field to address some of these conflicts
