Kevin is a native of Vancouver, Canada and a recent graduate of the University of British Columbia (UBC). During his time at UBC, Kevin focused on 19th century European History, International Political Economy, and most recently on the role that free markets can play in the development of the world's poorest nations.
Kevin is a self-declared 'climate-hawk' and is highly passionate about global responses to climate change, and the political economy of carbon pricing. He currently serves as the 2012 Delhi Sustainable Development Summit--Special Projects Lead for Student Energy (www.studentenergy.org), a global not-for-profit that is creating a movement of young leaders committed to transitioning the world to a sustainable energy future. The organization hosts the highly successful biennial International Student Energy Summit (ISES) and Kevin was a member of the planning team for ISES 2011 in Vancouver.
As a Junior Fellow at the Centre for International Governance INnovation (CIGI), Kevin is part of the graduate-student policy team researching the G20's Mutual Assessment Process (MAP) -- a governance initiative recently launched by the group as part of its collective response to the 2008-2009 Financial Crisis.
