About Juniper Katz

I’m an Assistant Professor of Public Policy at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Climate Policy Fellow at the Roosevelt Institute. My primary areas of research include environmental policy with a focus on land use, conservation, policy process, and renewable energy. I also research nonprofit management and leadership topics.

My experience as an executive director of a conservation organization informs my teaching in policy analysis, program evaluation, and the politics of the policy process.
