I am an Associate Professor in the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto.  I direct Munk One, a first year undergraduate program on Global Innovation that offers students a uniquely enriched experience from the very outset of their university experience.  I also co-direct the Environmental Governance Lab with Steven Bernstein and Matthew Hoffmann.  This is a research hub for scholars working on some of the most important environmental challenges today, advancing ideas and tools to address them. 

During the 2019/2020 academic year I am a visiting Scholar at Carlos III University - Juan March Institute of Social Sciences, Madrid, Spain

I am a Senior Research Fellow of the Earth System Governance research alliance, and Co-Director of the Accountability in Global Environmental Task Force with Susan Park (University of Sydney).

My research focuses on global environmental governance, international organizations and public-private partnerships.  My current research programs deal with accountability in global environmental governance, and extractives and development in Argentina, Ecuador and Mexico.  I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Toronto.  

One of my current teaching projects is called Global Classrooms and it envisions ways to internationalize the traditional classroom using internet platforms.  Here you can find a knowledge hub with publications, case studies and useful tools that I have collected on this teaching approach.
