I am a public policy scholar interested in the interplay of expertise and public policymaking. A current project with Bruce Desmarais involves the analysis of how science is employed in regulatory policymaking in the US and, subsequently, the EU, using bibliometric and network analysis. We analyze how regulatory policymakers use science and other forms of information to inform decisionmaking, whether agencies utilize the most appropriate science, and examine the networks of publications, scientists, agency officials, interest groups, etc. that inform a broad range of regulatory policymaking. The project will also focus on how policymakers can better access and use science appropriately in reaching public policy decisions.
