Research Interests

My current research mainly focuses on i) the neoliberalization of nature in post-crisis Europe and neoliberal conservation with an emphasis on free market environmentalism and environmental markets, ii) environmental offsetting and extended urbanization, iii) environmental movements in the post-crisis era with an emphasis on the right to the city and how it can be linked to the right to nature, and iv) critical political economy, particularly on an analysis of the commodification of nature from the perspective of the theory of value and rent.
