RESEARCH THEMES

My research at the Bush School's Institute for Science, Technology, and Public Policy largely revolves around environmental and natural resources policy and the implications of stressors like climate change on that decision system.

Recovery and resilience policy with a strong emphasison infrastructure system. Public perception with a focus on risk assessment and policy preferences. Local commitment with a focus on intergovernmental cooperation and collaboration. Policy making with an emphasis on decisions for resource allocation.

Key areas related to climate change that I research include policies related to disasters such as flooding, public attitudes and behaviors towards climate change, local action on a municipal scale to address environmental risks, and collective action to address climate change impacts.
