Hi - thanks for visiting my academic homepage. I'm an assistant professor at Knox College, in the Environmental Studies Department.

My main research and teaching interests focus on political organizations, and on environmental politics.

The two main questions I am working at the moment are:
- How do under-represented groups choose between different types of political organizations?
- How can we best regulate controversial new technologies like high-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing (fracking)? This work is supported by the NSF.

To the left there is a copy of my CV, a brief overview of my research, and a list of the classes I've taught.


If you want to know more about anything on this site, or about my research in general, then please feel free to get in touch at bdfarrer@knox.edu
