Dr. David Shafie, assistant professor of Political Science, was invited to Washington, D.C. in June to help formulate a behavioral research agenda for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  The “scientist-to-scientist” meeting was part of an ongoing initiative by the EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) to integrate social science perspectives and share cross-disciplinary findings relevant to environmental policy.  Dr. Shafie was one of 24 social scientists from various fields who collaborated with the ORD leadership in identifying new interdisciplinary research priorities at the two-day meeting.
