My research focuses on domestic and comparative studies of renewable energy policy, with a focus on institutions and problem framing and how those policies are related to climate policy. I also focus on the politics of climate policy, especially on the framing of the issue. In addition, I am interested in science policy, including the politics of funding R&D.
