Ideas:
“  I'm currently focused on two research streams. The first is focused on Aboriginal and Indigenous law in Canada, with emphases on major resource projects, the duty to consult, and implementation of modern treaties. The second is focused on climate change law and policy, with an emphasis on market mechanisms and the integration of monetary values for carbon emissions into legal regimes.  ”
