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.

I have applied my background in experimental, cognitive, and perceptual psychology to the interdisciplinary problem of sustainability. Along with several colleagues in the College of Business, we have published research on socially sustainable systems and are in the process of writing a book that has been accepted for publication on socially sustainable business practices.
