Gwen Arnold

Title: 
Assistant Professor

I am co-director of the CEPB. Much of my work investigates the conditions under which scientific knowledge is integrated into the public policy process. I examine how decision-makers obtain, interpret, and apply scientific knowledge to real-world environmental policy problems. I pay particular attention to the decisions of ground-level government officials whose day-to-day work shapes policy, analyzing how their institutional contexts affect their information and choice opportunities. Much of my current work focuses on the regulation of hydraulic fracturing (fracking); I am also interested in wetland and water policy. I use a variety of methods in my work, including surveys, interviews, social network analysis, and statistical analysis.

Mark Lubell

Title: 
Professor

My research focuses on human behavior and the role of governance institutions in solving collective action problems and facilitating cooperation. The collective action problems associated with environmental policy provide a laboratory for my research. My current projects include watershed management, environmental activism, agricultural best management practices, and institutional change in local governments. I also dabble in experimental economics and simulation techniques to further explore collective action theory.

Research Statement: Cooperation and Natural Resource Management

I study collective-action problems in theory, lab, and field settings using quantitative and qualitative empirical methods. Collective-action problems occur when individuals make self-interested decisions that produce socially undesirable outcomes. People encounter collective-action problems on a daily basis. For example, many people are familiar with the difficulties of encouraging people to cooperate to clean a house or apartment. Or maybe you have tried to organize a sports team or other group activity, and discovered that some people will enjoy the benefits of the group without contributing any time or effort. Collective-action problems occur when everyone is willing to free ride, and therefore nothing is accomplished.
