Ina Möller is assistant professor at Wageningen University and Research. She works on institutional complexity, legitimacy and the science-policy interface in regional and global climate and food governance. Her principal empirical focus has been the field of climate geoengineering and the way that this contested concept has become part of contemporary policy making, for example through carbon dioxide removal or ‘negative emissions technologies’. Other areas of study include the use of science in climate litigation, the impact of global models and scenarios on policy making, and the way in which actors navigate, use and shape environmental regimes.
