dr. J.L. (Jesse) Reynolds

Postdoctoral Researcher 

Tilburg Law School
Department European and International Public Law


Dr. Jesse Reynolds is a scholar of international environmental policy. He researches and teaches how society can develop rules and institutions to manage environmental problems, particularly those involving new technologies. Presently, Dr. Reynolds?s primary focus is on climate engineering (or geoengineering), a group of proposed methods to intentionally intervene in earth systems at large scales in order to counterbalance anthropogenic climate change. While his approach is centered within international environmental law, he draws from diverse disciplines, including international relations and economics. Dr. Reynolds is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of European and International Public Law at Tilburg University in The Netherlands. He obtained his Ph.D. in international public law from Tilburg University; his Master?s in environmental policy from the University of California, Berkeley; and his Bachelor?s in chemistry and environmental sciences from Hampshire College.
