MADELINE SCHOMBURG (Ph.D., University of California, 2019). Fields: Environmental Policy; Environmental Justice. Dr. Schomburg's current work focuses on the role of narrative in shaping environmental policy outcomes on a broad range of issues. Most of her work has focused on domestic unconventional oil and gas development, investigating the role of interest groups in mobilizing constituents to participate in political processes and the role of policy entrepreneurs in diffusing relevant policies throughout the United States. She is broadly interested in human-environment interactions and the ways in which people mobilize for change around environmental policy problems, particularly in the context of environmental justice. Her scholarship has appeared in Policy Studies Journal and Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy.
