Brian Mayer

Assistant Professor, School of Sociology

My research interests lie in the relationships between societies and the environment and how each shape the other. My research focuses on the socioeconomic production of health and disease and how environmental health issues are contested by scientists, regulators, and citizens. My research projects tend to focus on the environmental and public health impacts of technological disasters and the individual and community efforts at recovery.
