Emmett McKinney is inspired by the idea that every issue is local for somebody – and that every stakeholder matters. This principle informs his research interests in climate adaptation, spatial inequality, and how technology can better protect society’s most vulnerable. Before joining MIT, Emmett spent two years as a Research Associate at the Environmental Law Institute (ELI), where he worked directly with international governments, civil society organizations, and other experts to strengthen the rule of environmental law. Prior to ELI, Emmett researched private governance strategies for climate mitigation through Vanderbilt University Law School. Emmett holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Policy and French from Vanderbilt University.
