Peter is a Lecturer in Environmental Politics and Policy. His research is particularly focused on governments' use of evidence and expertise for addressing environmental problems. Much of his focus is on climate change, because it is such a dastardly problem that no one seems able to definitively understand or resolve. His teaching since joining Flinders has included science-policy studies, philosophy of science, environmental policy, climate change policy and politics, and political geography.
Peter is Major Convenor for Geography & Environmental Studies
