I am Shirley Lukin, a PhD candidate at the Leonard Davis Institute for International Relations at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My research explores the intersection of environmental municipal networks and regime complexes, with an interest in understanding the ecosystem of these networks, their integration within the global climate regime, and the implications of their overlap.
In addition to my dissertation research, I am engaged in various projects focusing on the disaster relief complex and the socio-political implications of infrastructure in urban settings. These projects focus on the intricate dynamics of crisis management and urban development, providing a broader perspective on global and local governance issues.

Before my doctoral studies, I gained valuable experience in the government sector, conducting geopolitical research and working on foreign direct investment policy. My work involved assisting in negotiating bilateral investment treaties, which deepened my understanding of government policy processes and international relations. These experiences have shaped my current research and intellectual curiosities.
