I am currently senior counsel at the Carbon Tracker Initiative.

I am an attorney by training with a background in securities law and litigation related to environmental harms. I have served in the litigation section of a large New York-based firm and worked in the Environmental Protection Bureau of the New York Attorney General's office. I currently work in the area of corporate disclosure as it relates to climate change and a low-carbon energy transition.


1. The relationship between company disclosure of energy transition risk and related business planning.
2. Engagement by stakeholders in improving company efforts to reconcile business mandates with a low-carbon transition.
3. The governance and fiduciary duty implications of severe climate change for both companies and investment managers.
