Alexis Durand '16


Alexis Durand ’16 is an Environmental Studies concentrator interested in conceptualizing just and equitable solutions to international climate change policy issues.  Alex is working with Professor Timmons Roberts (Environmental Studies and Sociology) to explore international policy approaches to losses and damages from climate change.  In particular, she is investigating opportunities for the incorporation of compensation for losses and damages within international climate change policy.  Alex hopes her research will inform the development of a loss and damage regime in the future.  Alex is from East Tennessee, and enjoys baking and backpacking in her free time.
