David G. Victor is Professor of international relations and director of the Laboratory on International Law and Regulation at the University of California, San Diego. His research focuses on highly regulated industries, such as electric power, and how regulation affects the operation of major energy markets. He is author of Global Warming Gridlock, which explains why the world hasn’t made much diplomatic progress on the problem of climate change while also exploring new strategies that would be more effective. The book was recognized by The Economist as one of the best books of 2011. Prior to joining the faculty at UC San Diego, Victor served as director of the Program on Energy and Sustainable Development at Stanford University where he was also a Professor at Stanford Law School and taught energy and environmental law.
