My research agenda, broadly defined, focuses on examining factors that influence environmental and public health decision making in a variety of settings, as well as evaluating the impact of environmental and public health decision making. Much of my work can be described as exploring bureaucratic behavior at the federal, state and local levels. I am particularly interested in understanding how public officials address complex, interdisciplinary policy problems; my research tends to explore how decision makers balance competing and often conflicting needs.
