Dorothy Daley, Ph.D., M.S., is a Professor at the University of Kansas with a joint appointment in the School of Public Affairs & Administration and the Environmental Studies Program. Daley specializes in public policy analysis, with a particular emphasis on environmental and public health policy. Her research tends to explore how decision makers balance competing and often conflicting needs to address environmental and public health problems. Daley’s scholarship has examined the impact of community participation at hazardous waste sites, interagency collaboration in addressing environmental problems, and urban redevelopment and public health. Current research projects focus on the relationship between complex, multilevel governance structures and environmental & public health outcomes. For example, her on-going research on climate change explores what types of subnational climate policies are likely to result in improved environmental performance. Daley’s research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Her work has been published in a range of outlets including the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Policy Studies Journal, and the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management. At the University of Kansas, Daley teaches a range of courses that highlight the opportunities and challenges of using scientific evidence to inform public policy. This includes Public Policy Analysis, Environmental Justice and Public Policy, and the Politics of Public Health. She holds a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of California, Davis and an M.S. in Environmental Science from Louisiana State University. From 2003 to 2005 she participated in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Health and Society Scholar Program at the University of Wisconsin.
