About Me:

I am the Lee Hill Snowdon Professor of Environmental Policy at the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University. My research focuses on global environmental politics with an emphasis on water and energy. My book -- State Making and Environmental Cooperation: Linking Domestic Politics and International Politics in Central Asia (MIT Press 2002) -- was the recipient of the 2003 Chadwick Alger Prize and the 2003 Lynton Keith Caldwell Prize. I have co-authored Oil is not a Curse (Cambridge University Press 2010) and co-edited Water and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding (Earthscan Press, 2014) and The Oxford Handbook on Water Politics and Policy (Oxford University Press 2018). I was a recipient of the 2017 Women Peacebuilders for Water Award under the auspices of “Fondazione Milano per Expo 2015”.
