THE STEWARDSHIP MAPPING AND ASSESSMENT PROJECT (STEW-MAP)
This project, which is a collaboration with colleagues at the US Forest Service, studies how civic groups are working together to steward their local communities in New York City (we surveyed 2767 civic groups in 2007). We are currently writing up findings and conducting network analysis of the connections among these groups and mapping them and their connections geographically. Continuation of the Project was funded as part of the NSF ULTRA-Ex program in fall 2009 to understand the relationship between urban civic stewardship and re-greening efforts in NYC (both quantitatively and qualitatively).

US Climate Policy Network
This project aims to explore transnational comparisons of national policy responses to global climate change focusing on the role of social and advocacy networks. Funded by a grant from the Human and Social Dynamics Program of the National Science Foundation, I am directing the US case study for this project.
