Alumni: Nathaniel Logar
Federally Funded Science For User Benefit: Policy Mechanisms for Mission-Oriented Research
After graduation: Research Fellow at the Kennedy School of Government
ENVS Graduate Program - Secondary Core prior to Fall 2012
Dr. Nathaniel Logar studies institutional policies for useable science, policies for integrating user needs into decision processes, and partnerships between federal actors and private entities. Nat was a post-doctoral associate at Arizona State University's Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes, working on a project called "Advancing Science Policy for Sustainability." He conducted his Ph.D. research at the University of Colorado's Center for Science & Technology Policy Research.
Dr. Logar earned an Sc.B. from Brown University in Geology-Biology. His undergraduate work and the beginning of his graduate career focused on carbon cycle science and paleoclimatology. As he became exposed to policy research in graduate school, his interests shifted from climate science to science policy. In the past, he has performed research on the FDA approval process for transgenic fish and on climate science policy, as a part of an NSF-funded interdisciplinary group called Carbon, Climate, and Society. His dissertation work focused on how federally funded institutions can fashion science policies for reconciliation of the supply of federal science and the demand for information. His dissertation case studies addressed science policies in the USDA's Agricultural Research Service, the Naval Research Laboratory, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
