I collaborate with experts in different fields (incl. Matthew Johnson, David Bickford, Thomas Sparks, Benjamin Moss, Linnea Luupala, Vanessa Burns) in order to address environmental, ethical, legal etc. implications of climate change.
I also collaborate with my colleagues from Slovenia (Žiga Zaplotnik, Nina Črnivec, Aljoša Slameršak) mostly on informing the Slovenian general public and politicians of the climate change impacts and how to address them; some links related to Slovenian meterology can be found here.
