Research interests

Pauline's research interests are focused on the political and economic aspects of environmental issues, especially examining how the latter interrelate with the functioning and organisation of the capitalist economy.

A particular interest is the building, and implications, of a Circular Economy (i.e., maximising the value from resources and minimising waste).

Her research in this area includes multi-disciplinary collaborations with colleagues in environmental sciences, chemical and systems engineering.
