Phillip M. Hannam, Science, Technology and Environmental Policy

A mechanical engineer by background, Phil applies tools from international relations theory, economics, and theoretical ecology to analyze climate change cooperation and low-carbon energy development in developing countries. Phil studies the effect of “club” agreements in deepening international climate cooperation, as well as the influence of technology change and policy, multilateral development institutions, and south-south cooperation on energy investment decisions in Asia.  Phil speaks Chinese and has attended the UN climate negotiations for several years.
