Prof. Knox-Hayes examines the ways in which social and environmental systems are governed under changing temporal and spatial scales as a consequence of globalization. She has conducted extensive research in the United States, Europe and the Asia-Pacific on the use of market mechanisms to govern climate change. In addition she has studied how individuals and organizations plan and make decisions under conditions of socio-economic uncertainty. Her latest project examines how social values shape sustainable development in the Arctic. Prof. Knox-Hayes has been the recipient of an SSRC Abe Fellowship for study of environmental finance in the Asia-Pacific and a Fulbright Fellowship for study of sustainable decision-making in Iceland.
