Developing a Social-Cognitive, Multilevel, Empirically-Based Model of Public Engagement for the Shaping of Science and Innovation Policy
Public engagements involving residents, scientists, and policymakers are increasingly being used to shape policy in the US. Despite the attention paid to such engagements, there is a lack of knowledge and theory concerning which forms, features, and contexts of public engagements are meaningful to participants and produce insightful information that is useful to scientists and […]

Knowledge Discovery and Information Fusion Tools for Collaborative Systems to Adaptively Manage Uncertain Hydrological Resources
There is a critical need to accurately and efficiently assess and manage water quantity. This is a challenge because water management is conducted under conditions of uncertainty about current and future water resources. Adaptive water management has become the policy heuristic for flexible water management that responds to ever changing physical and social demands. The […]
This was an evaluation of a pilot project aimed at reducing failure to appear in court for a defendant’s misdemeanor hearing. The rate at which criminal defendants fail to appear in court is as high as 25-30%, depending on the jurisdiction and type of offense. Failure to appear increases workloads and expenditures for the courts […]
This project was an investigation of how science had been considered and employed in developing options to divert water from North Dakota to Manitoba. Two questions were explored: (1) What role, if any, does science play in governmental deliberations and intergovernmental processes that may produce ecological consequences of uncertain scale, magnitude and scope in another […]
