Duncan McLaren

Research Fellow

Research Overview

My PhD research focuses on the justice implications of climate engineering, explored through lenses adopted and adapted from science and technology studies, moral philosophy and the environmental humanities. I also continue to pursue complementary and broader interests regarding climate change, energy, and urban development.
