Political scientist specializing on international climate negotiations

My research is focused on key actors in international climate negotiations, and in particular the role of the United States. The participation of the United States in international climate cooperation has for years been limited by the political infeasibility of a comprehensive domestic climate policy. I study the drivers and barriers for change in US domestic climate policy .

Projects

  • Centre for International Climate and Energy Policy (CICEP) CICEP is one of three centres for social science based research on environment-friendly energy established by the Research Council of Norway in 2011.
  • Politically Feasible Renewable Energy Development: The Role of Public Acceptance. The over-arching task of this project is to study the political feasibility of the low carbon energy policy transition initiated by the EU. In order to adopt and implement efficient policies at the regional, national and local level, public acceptance for policy change will be crucial.
  • ETS - Diffusion Designing Effective Emissions Trading: The Contribution of International Diffusion (ETS-DIFFUSION) – Project collaboration with Fridtjof Nansen Intitute
  • Integration of Power Transmission Grids The primary objective of this project is to generate new knowledge about the institutional, technological, and economical, challenges related to the transformation of transmission power grids across Europe to make way for greater energy systems integration that, in turn, can facilitate longterm, sustainable restructuring of European countries' energy systems, efficient use of renewable energy sources, power system flexibility, and further increasing the shares of renewable energy. This new knowledge is useful for informing decision makers in policy and industry in a time of farreaching change in European power systems.
  • From emission to extraction: The political economy of leaving fossil fuels in the ground Identifying options for institutional change at the international level that could govern the transition away from fossil fuels.
  • India in a globalizing world India's climate and energy policy strategy in a globalizing world: Changing global structures and international cooperation (INDGLOB)
