Research Summary

For the past 3 years I have worked for the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) secretariat as a consultant, particularly assisting the UNFCCC negotiations on agriculture, forestry and land use. I also consult for other organizations (IISD, UNDP) and I'm part of the expert review teams that review countries' mitigation and adaptation commitments under the UNFCCC. I wrote my PhD dissertation on the creation of a market for sinks under the Kyoto Protocol (cultural anthropology, CUNY). At this point I know more of the UN negotiations that anything else, but the work I am most proud of relates to capacity building for negotiators from developing countries. What interests me mostly is how to reconcile this with what really happens on the ground, and generally anything to do with land use/forestry and climate change.
