Professional Focus

I have expertise in public health law and am interested in issues of jurisprudence and ethics in public health law. My research has focused primarily on issues of climate disruption, human health, and governance. I have also published on the First Amendment and public health; issues of stigma, and on pedagogy.  I am also interested in issues of climate adaptation, higher education, and strategic planning. I am a fellow of the Executive Leadership Academy at the Center for Studies in Higher Education at UC Berkeley and have completed a certificate in strategic foresight at the University of Houston.
