- International Environmental politics
- EU climate policy
My research interests focus on the interaction between international and domestic levels of governance, and between economic and environmental policy objectives and institutions. More specifically, my research has focused on carbon pricing, climate mitigation targets and policy instruments, climate finance and fossil fuel subsidies.
Currently, I am inter alia undertaking research on international influences (e.g. the Sustainable Development Goals or learning from other countries) on domestic policies, including carbon pricing policies and fossil fuel subsidies.
From 2007 to 2010 I worked in the international climate change team of the Danish Finance Ministry.
