About Me

My research focuses on understanding the complex process of developing and implementing public policies at the federal, state, and local levels. This includes the initial phase of identifying problems in society, resolutions to resolve problems, and assessing the performance of the policies once implemented. Specific issue areas of interest include organic food and agriculture policy, food labeling, university-community partnerships for improving local environmental performance, and local environmental performance.
