Environmental Policy Analysis

Michael BlackhurstMichael Blackhurst, PhD

The Environmental Policy Analysis program at the Center for Social and Urban Research is led by Dr. Mike Blackhurst.  The Environmental Policy Analysis program integrates engineering and social science methods to addresses society’s environmental challenges through open source publications and decision support resources.  The Environmental Policy Program also serves to connect researchers at the University of Pittsburgh to sponsors and interests external to the University.  We work with sponsors big and small across a wide variety of research and outreach domains.
