My research is inspired by contemporary problems of governance, institutional development, regulatory innovation, and comparative public policy. Working in the tradition of historical institutionalism makes visible and understandable the overarching contexts and interacting processes that shape politics and public policymaking. I explore how policies are formed and how policy actors generate new modes of interaction, which is inextricably linked to explaining the institutional configurations and policy outcomes. My current research agenda is focused on the problem of bureaucratic reorganization and environmental policy capacity in Russia. Another project seeks to explore the relationship between governmental performance in environmental policy and institutionalization and formalization of environmental groups. My next project will examine the legal, institutional, and regulatory factors affecting water quality trading in the U.S. It will analyze how program design, institutional settings, and problems related to inadequate supply and demand have significant effects on the behavior and performance of trading programs. Still another project develops a conceptual framework for analyzing the roles different countries play in the process of globalization, which brings to light the complexity of policy conditions globalization gives rise to.
