Manjana Milkoreit is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Sociology and Human Geography at the University of Oslo. She was previously an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Purdue University. Before joining Purdue, she was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Arizona State University, where she founded and directed the Imagination and Climate Futures Initiative. Dr.Milkoreit's research integrates international relations scholarship and cognitive theory to study actor motivations and beliefs, institutional and policy design related to climate change. She is interested in governance challenges at the science-policy-society interface, including the use of scientific knowledge in environmental decision-making, and the role of ideologies in advancing or preventing effective societal responses to climate change. Two topics dominate her current research agenda: the challenges of future thinking (scientifically informed imagination) in climate change politics and the design of effective review mechanisms under the Paris Agreement.
