I am interested in understanding what makes governments cooperate with one another on important global issues (I have worked on many environmental topics – global warming, stratospheric ozone, European acid rain, regional marine pollution, etc.). My interests have to do with the interactions of different political actors (governments, international organizations, private sector, scientific networks, and civil society) in various stages of global governance, and the relative effectiveness of these different patterns. My work has largely been qualitative (process tracing, elite interviews, comparative case studies) but I am also interested in applying network analysis to better map networks of activist scientists and to analyze the interplay between issues and actors.
