Scott Hamilton holds an M.Phil in International Relations (University of Oxford, UK), a PhD in International Relations (The London School of Economics and Political Science, UK), and recently he was one of Canada’s Banting Postdoctoral Fellows (2017-19).
During his time in academia, Dr. Hamilton edited peer-reviewed academic journals, taught Masters and PhD courses on international political theory and international security, published peer-reviewed and award-winning articles in top-ranked international journals, and delivered many webinars, speeches, and conference presentations. His areas of expertise include: global politics, the politics of climate change science, the Anthropocene epoch, and international political philosophy.
Seeking to translate his research into action, Dr. Hamilton has now moved from academia into administrative roles that can help to shape the way that research and knowledge is created, facilitated, and mobilized within universities, governments, and the public. In his spare time, he also sits on the Board of Directors of the Cambridge Food Bank, and recently he was a candidate for the riding of Cambridge and North Dumfries in the 2019 Canadian Federal Election.
