Megan Mullin is Associate Professor of Environmental Politics at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment. She has secondary faculty appointments in the Department of Political Science and the Sanford School of Public Policy. Mullin is a scholar of American political institutions and behavior, focusing on the intersection between environmental conditions and political decision making. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley.

Mullin has published widely in political science, public administration, and general science journals and is the recipient of five awards from the American Political Science Association, including the Lynton Keith Caldwell Award for her book, Governing the Tap: Special District Governance and the New Local Politics of Water (MIT Press, 2009). Her current research focuses on the governance and finance of urban water services, public opinion about climate change, and the local politics of climate adaptation.

This lecture is part of the David Bradford Energy and Environmental Seminar Series, organized by the Center for Policy Research on Energy and Environment, and cosponsored by the Kahneman-Treisman Center for Behavioral Science & Public Policy. The seminars highlight scholars and practitioners from various fields working on critical research related to science policy. We invite speakers to share new research they are working on, focusing on important policy-relevant issues. Since its inception in Fall 1999, this series has hosted many speakers who are influential in science & environmental policy.

Attendance by Princeton students, faculty and staff is encouraged.  This seminar is open to the public on a limited basis with approved RSVP to ccrosby@princeton.edu
