Dr. Switzer’s work stands at the intersection of political science, public management, and normative theory, with an emphasis on water policy in the United States. His major research focus is on how political and administrative variables shape the implementation and development of environmental policy at the local level. His current research agenda is aimed at exploring how the organizational structure of water utilities determines responses to the political, climatological, and demographic environment in which the organization exists. He has additional interests in democratic theory, urban policy, and environmental justice.
