About Me

Global Commons: My work explores the successes and failures of attempts to define, utilize, and manage non-terrestrial spaces throughout history.

Environmentalism: My interest in the political content of environmentalist thought was piqued as an undergraduate, and revived in recent projects.

Planetary Geopolitics: My focus on the interactions between technology, ecology, and geography at a planetary scale, and political implications.
