Jasmine Livingston’s research draws on perspectives from global environmental governance and science and technology studies in order to study the role of science and its practices have in governing the climate. In particular she has been interested in the IPCC and its work in defining goals, targets, and pathways for the future. Jasmine has a PhD from Lund University and is currently a Post Doctoral Researcher at Utrecht University where she works to bring a global governance perspective to a large consortium of climate modelling teams.
