In this capacity, I am conducting research on the ways in which political conditions shape the impact that policies have on public health outcomes, reproductive health policy, and nationwide survey research on health insurance utilization and related challenges of inequality stemming from insurer behavior in claim processing. I have additionally conducted survey research on the impact of COVID-19 on health care utilization, mental health, and access to sexual and reproductive health care. Prior to this position, I was a Lecturer in Political Science at Tufts University, where I taught courses on American politics, public policy, and public law. In the 2016-17 academic year, I was a Lecturer in Political Science at Yale University, where I taught courses on American politics and quantitative methodology. In the 2015-2016 academic year, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. I completed my PhD in Political Science at Columbia University in 2015, with emphases in American Politics (major subfield) and Methodology (minor subfield). My dissertation, "When Do Agencies Have Agency? Bureaucratic Noncompliance and Dynamic Lawmaking in the United States, 1973-2010," examines the conditions under which administrative agencies implement in ways that provoke constraints from Congress and the courts, often for behavior that I refer to as noncompliance. My op-eds and other health care commentary has appeared in the New York Times, The Guardian, ​Washington Post's Monkey Cage Blog, Rewire News, Public Seminar, Bustle, The Conversation, Medium, and KevinMD, and I have appeared on France 24 and CBC News to discuss American politics and policy. I was a 2013-14 Democracy and Markets Fellow at the Tobin Project. Prior to graduate school, I was engaged in political science and methodology research at UC Berkeley (go bears!), assisted with ESL and writing workshops in San Francisco, and worked on Democratic political campaigns as well as voting rights advocacy in Washington DC. A San Francisco Bay Area native, I received a B.A. with honors in Political Science from UC Berkeley in 2009. In addition to doing American politics and health policy research, I am a stand-up comedian who has performed comedy throughout New York City, New Haven, Boston, and Los Angeles. When not working or performing, I enjoy doing creative writing, catching live music, and watching sports (go NY Yankees, SF Giants, and Golden State Warriors!).   Pete on YouTube Pete on Twitter Pete On Instagram Pete Personal FB page

David Orr | Education, Ecological Literacy and Awareness of our Natural Systems

Earth Charter Podcast

Quick Overview David Orr holds that the challenge for all educators is to bring young people to become aware of and appreciate the natural world so that they can discipline their lives to conform with how the world works as a natural system. We need to see ourselves as having a dual citizenship in our nature as well as our political system. Dr. Orr urges educators to adapt all curricula to sustainability. In turn, he has adapted the architecture of education to the pedagogy or learning of environmental sustainability. He stressed that sustainability is not just to be seen as an abstraction, but needs to be built into the place in which students learn about sustainability. Dr. Orr reviews offers additional advice based on the books he has written and edited. To conclude, Dr. Orr speaks about the Earth Charter, which he considers to be “the seminal document of our times”.
