Research Information:

I currently research the range of positions that investors take to respond to climate. These include incorporating ESG in their investment policies, engaging with companies, or divesting from fossil fuels entirely. I am currently involved on a large project about the fossil fuel divestment movement, comprised of students, faculty, and other activists worldwide who promote the exit from carbon intensive industries, in large institutional investors like pension funds, universities, and governments. I examine the range of responses to this movement, from doing nothing, to adopting a net-zero approach, all the way to committing to divest from energy companies.
