Andrew (Andy) McGuire, PhD

  • Teaching Faculty

I received my PhD in biological sciences in 2017 with a focus on environmental governance. My current research interests surround the institutionalization of decision-making processes that are both environmentally and socially sustainable.  Specifically, I am interested in the relationship between the structure of a community and how that influences the ability of individuals to practice agency, demonstrate leadership, and build trust.
