PhD thesis title: Green Republicanism, the State and the Planetary Crisis: A Critical Analysis of the Post-Growth, Post-Carbon State
My doctoral research focuses on green politics and political economy approaches to building a theory of the post-growth, post-carbon state. In opposition to techno-optimistic ‘green growth’ narratives favouring the pursuit of climate stability and ecological sustainability under capitalism, this project draws from developing literatures in green republicanism, post-growth politics and political economy and radical social movements in theorising an emancipatory, transformative alternative to the economic growth-oriented liberal-capitalist state. In doing so, it centres on issues of climate breakdown, capitalism, social justice, democratisation, post-productivism and theories of social transformation.
Currently engaged as a teaching assistant at Queen's, I am working on a first-year undergraduate spring semester (2021) module entitled Issues in Contemporary Politics.
I am a member of the Centre for Sustainability, Equality and Climate Action (SECA) and acting representative for PhD students on the Centre's management team.
