Student Researcher, University of York

I am an undergraduate Laidlaw Scholar studying Philosophy and Politics at the University of York. I am very interested in the climate change debate and the politics associated with it. Specifically, my research project investigates the discourse of individual responsibility presented as a way to halt climate change and whether this discourse helps slow or accelerate the fight against it.
