Research Interests:

My research focuses on democracy and environmentalism in postwar Europe. I study the way that citizens become engaged in public affairs and how people perceive of the political in the post-industrial era. My current book project traces the emergence of the environmental movement in western Europe from the grassroots up. I look at how people of many different backgrounds became involved in local protests against nuclear reactors during the seventies and the ways that these experiences caused them to change their values and thus led to the development of Green politics in France, West Germany, and Switzerland.
