Paul Nix

STEP Ph.D. Student

Paul is a Ph.D. candidate at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs of Princeton University. Generally speaking, his interests lie in the field of climate change adaptation – with a particular emphasis on:

  • The interaction and disparity between the discourses of public and governance actors with respect to adaptation measures
  • Risk evaluation and acquisition mechanisms and their impact on tangible actions
  • And the comparative analysis of cases from these two spheres of research

Prior to coming to Princeton, Paul graduated with a BSc. in Geology and a MSc. in Geology with an emphasis in risk management from the Universities of Lausanne and Geneva; and after completing his Ph.D., looks to work with the aim of improving coastal communities’ adaptation potential with respect to climate change related processes.
