Trained as an anthropologist and human geographer, Sebastian looks at the social, cultural and political dimensions of environmental hazards and risk. He has been a Research Fellow at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), where he acted as a co-investigator on a project focusing on the political ecology of carbon capture in the French Pyrénées-Atlantiques region; and at King’s College London, where his work looked at the contested understandings of uncertainty, science and responsibility involved in early warning systems (EWs) for flooding in Europe. The innovative nature of this work has been to highlight the social and political obstacles to the use and communication of ensemble predictions systems and what their intake means to environmental politics more generally.
