I am generally interested in the intersection of climate change/environmental justice and human rights. I have spent several years working on environment and climate change issues with various sections of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. Some of my recent work with direct relevance to climate and health included leading the drafting of a 2020 report to the Human Rights Council on Climate Change and the Rights of Older Persons and serving as principle drafter on an amicus brief to the European Court of Human Rights on a climate case brought by an organization of older women from Switzerland involving allegations about the negative health effects of climate change on their demographic.
