From a policy theory perspective, my focus is on behavioral aspects of individuals acting in the policy process. I am currently studying policy problem recognition at the individual level, for example. My domain of expertise is in science, technology and environmental policy. I have a particular focus within that area on information technology policy issues including cybersecurity policies.
