Leslie works in three main areas: climate change adaptation and cities, especially in east- and south-east Asia; socio-cultural effects of environmental change in coastal regions; and just transitions for high-emitting regions. There is a strong empirical aspect to Leslie’s research, and he enjoys collaborating with people from other sectors and academic disciplines to work towards practical outcomes to environmental problems.
