Office Hours

By appointment at this link


NYU Shanghai students interested in Environmental Studies are encouraged to consider a major in Social Science. Details of the major are available here. If you complete at least three focus courses in Environmental Studies, you are eligible for the Environmental Studies track. Alternatively, if your major is not Social Science, you could consider the Environmental Studies minor, which is managed from Washington Square. If either of these is what you desire to pursue, please email to set up an appointment with me to discuss further.

Study-away: Going to the network

NYU Shanghai students who wish to take environmental courses during their study-away semester/s often find course offerings most abundant in the following sites: Washington Square, Abu Dhabi, Sydney, Berlin, London, and Washington DC. Course availability varies from semester to semester. I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have about studying-away.

Study-away: Coming from the network

NYU Washington Square and Abu Dhabi students who wish to take environmental courses when they study-away in Shanghai can expect to have a good number of options available, including Environment and Society, Global Environmental Politics, Nature in Social Thought, Chinese Environmental Governance, History of Water, Energy and Environment, Anthropocene, and Water Energy Food Nexus. We continue to diversify our course offerings as the Shanghai campus grows.


NYU Shanghai students who wish to apply for DURF support under my supervision are advised to schedule a one-on-one meeting via email at least ten days before the official DURF application deadline. Priority is given to students who have successfully completed coursework with me, and/or who have a track record of academic, professional, or personal commitment to environmental work.

Recommendation letters

Students who need recommendation letters should email their requests to me at least ten days before the letters are due. In the email, please include a brief description of the program/s you are applying to, an up-to-date resume, and specific requirements about the letter (i.e. due date, format, accompanying form, etc). You may also choose to include in the email a copy of your transcript, application essay, and/or any other materials you deem relevant.  |  +01 608 616 0417  |
