Mark Neff is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes and an Instructor, School of Sustainability at Arizona State University. Mark’s research focuses primarily on understanding linkages between ecological science and environmental governance, with an eye toward exploring how ecological scientists establish research agendas and the broader societal impacts of those choices. Mark’s primary teaching interests lie at the intersection of environmental studies, science studies and science policy, and environmental governance. His doctoral research, conducted through ASU’s School of Life Sciences and CSPO, used mixed qualitative and quantitative approaches to understand how and why the ecology research agenda changes over time and what that means for societal understandings of the environment. Prior to his doctoral program in the School of Life Sciences at ASU, Mark received a master’s degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Oregon. His research there focused on using scenario analysis as a tool to aid in ecological management decision-making in politically charged and uncertain situations.
