I'm exploring various ways in which science and the science system are changing in the Anthropocene. With Mandy de Wilde I explored the role of the imaginary of a clean energy economy in geoscientific research into resource extraction.
With Michael Bernstein, Rob Smith and Mandy de Wilde I unpacked the new 'Do No Significant Harm'-principle that was introduced in the European Commission's Green Deal and is also part of Horizon Europe. We propose a different approach to harm that would allow researchers to 'stay with the harm'.
