Research Interests

Environmental policy and politics, specifically state and local climate change and renewable energy policy adoption and effectiveness. I am also interested in issues of community and individual energy awareness and choices. 

My dissertation examines how people and communities can exert their values and enact high-impact climate change policies. I focus on sub-state governments and bottom-up policymaking, including local control, public participation, and leadership.
