PhD Student

Aaron is an interdisciplinary PhD Scholar investigating the feasibility, desirability, and governance of last-ditch efforts to address climate change (developing new technologies to pull greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere, and reflecting sunlight to cool the Earth).

Looking across the history of technological development and potential catastrophes in the future, Aaron looks to inform effective climate & technology governance.

Aaron holds a Bachelor of Arts with First Class Honours in International Relations and Geography from the Australian National University. Aaron's Honours thesis investigated how legal disputes under the World Trade Organisation overlap with environmental policy.
