    Expertise: Ecological economics; environmental policy and politics; climate change adaptation; carbon trading; environmental attitude and behavior; environmental risk perception; environmental values and valuation; human geographyMy research addresses problems associated with valuing the environment, i.e. measuring environmental benefits in economic terms. My recent projects cover broader issues concerning the role of market-based policy approaches, including various carbon pricing mechanisms and risk pricing instruments (e.g. natural disaster insurance in Australia). More specifically, I focus on public and organizational perceptions and experiences of environmental changes and the ways in which these discursively interact with narratives of economic development. I draw implications of such discursive interactions for policy-making.
