Political scientist focusing on climate policy processes in large developing countries
My current research focuses on comparative analyses of climate policies in large developing countries, mainly Brazil and India. My main research interests include domestic and international climate and energy policies, with special focus on the BASIC countries (Brazil, South Africa, India, and China). In upcoming projects the main focus will be on the relationship between the EU and the BASIC countries in international and domestic climate policy processes.

- Klimajoker i Brasil Fokuset på økonomisk vekst har ført til store ødeleggelser og avskoging i Brasils unike regnskog, Amazonas. I et krafttak klarte myndighetene mellom 2004 og 2012 å redusere avskogingen med 75 prosent, men ennå er det skjær i sjøen. Og neste år er det presidentvalg.
- Mens de venter på lokomotivene Raskt voksende økonomier nekter å være internasjonale lokomotiver for en grønn utvikling. Motviljen er helt forståelig.
