Pragmatism, political philosophy, and ethics. Teach grad seminars on international environmental institutions and law, sustainable development and climate change adaptation, food security and environmental change, public policy and ethics, and environmental ethics.
Also, teach a course in Indonesia (Bali, Sumatra, and Java) on social-ecological systems and development policy; a course in Peru (in the Amazon and Lima) on sustainable development, informal economies, environmental policy, and indigenous peoples' rights; and courses on policy and ethics to mid-level Chinese government officials.

Books on agrarianism and pragmatism, torture, sustainability, and a forthcoming volume on organized environmental crime.
I am as interested in public philosophy as I am in philosophy truly engaging and learning from analysis of the details of policy institutions and mechanisms, theories and practices, procedures and political realities, and the intersection between inquiry-driven philosophy, economic practices and theories, and fair and effective public policy.
