Over the years, I have been fortunate in securing external funding for large research projects on urban climate governance and other areas of regulatory governance. Grant funding has been provided by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research, the Australian Research Council, Ritsumeikan University and the Korean Legal Research Institute. In addition, I have worked on commissioned research projects for organisations including the European Commission, the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, and the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy.
In my current role as Chair of Regulatory Practice at the Victoria University of Wellington, my research is broadly organised around the question: Is regulatory stewardship sufficient to bolster our social license to regulate in the 21st century? In my previous roles, my focus has particularly been on unravelling the virtues and (im)practicalities of innovative forms of urban climate governance.
