Research

My recent research projects have focused on environmental impacts of shipping, potential to reduce air emissions and the socio-economic implications of emission regulation. My recent peer-reviewed articles have dealt with possibilities to reduce vessel air emissions and energy transition in shipping, sustainability and corporate social responsibility in maritime transport and seaports, maritime governance and regulation, and geographical research.
