Uncertainties in Science and Policy-Making
My earliest research on the interaction between global change science and on-the-ground decision-making focused on sea-level rise policy in three US coastal states. The project analyzed why Maine, North Carolina and South Carolina moved forward with these policies, despite scientific uncertainties and public doubt in the science of climate change. This research resulted in a better understanding of the non-scientific, human uncertainties involved in assessment, policy-making, and management of global change.
