Jeff Feng received their Ph.D. and master’s degree in political science from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and their A.B. in environmental sciences and policy from Duke University. They also earned a doctoral emphasis in feminist studies. Their research agenda focuses on the intersections of climate justice and queer liberation in social movements. They see their research advancing climate justice by working alongside organizers as a scholar-activist. As such, they have organized with the Central Coast Climate Justice Network to envision local Green New Deal policies and look forward to movement build with the Hamilton community and the surrounding areas.
