Ben Mylius completed his Ph.D. in Environmental Political Theory at Columbia and his LLM at Yale Law School after his undergraduate studies in Australia. His work revolves around climate, storytelling, and imagination. At the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society, Ben will be working on a book-length project exploring different tools communities can use to imagine their own just, resilient, and dynamic climate futures.
