Jonas Schoenefeld

Visiting Researcher

Throughout my research career, I have focused on sustainability and particularly the politics of the environment, climate change and energy. I hold a PhD from the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia, an MPhil from the University of Oxford and a BA from Middlebury College, USA. In October 2016, I joined the Institute for Political Science at the Technical University of Darmstadt/Germany as a research associate, but remain a visiting researcher at the Tyndall Centre.
