Public policy needs to be informed by unbiased and holistic research. Over the past decade, I have worked on projects for The Center for Rural Pennsylvania that have followed these principles. With Dr. Michael Moltz, we examined legislation and regulation directed toward invasive species prevention, control, and eradication. Dr. Niel Brasher and I conducted a study about the role of rural public libraries in providing a broad array of services in their communities.
