Summary

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.
