Current Research Interests
Dr. McCauley earned a Ph.D. from the School of Geography at Clark University in 2009 and has held teaching positions at Clark University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute and The College of the Holy Cross. His research examines the new governance regimes, economic structures and socio-technical configurations that are emerging as localities respond to global climate change and global economic change. His recent and ongoing projects include 1) a multi-method examination of metropolitan land use change in the Greater Boston Region, 2) an actor-network based assessment of sustainability transition in the US electricity system, and 3) participatory action research aimed at facilitating and critically examining eco-city initiatives in the Northeastern USA and Southern China.
