Research Interests

Jordan is interested in the science-policy interface, primarily with respect to energy and climate change. In part as a result of his work with Dr. Newell, he has a growing interest in the ability of cities and states to address pressing environmental issues in the absence of federal policy. He is increasingly concerned about the state of the natural world, but is optimistic about society's capacity to tackle big challenges.
