• Co-author of “Import Safety: Regulatory Governance in the Global Economy”
• Researches and teaches environmental law and policy, government regulation and regulatory strategy.

“Hard economic times accentuate the competitive pressures that lead firms to cut corners on safety.
"Consumers in the U.S. and Europe cannot realistically expect their own governments to inspect each and every product imported from abroad. What consumers need to see are smarter ways to deploy traditional regulatory
tools, new forms of international cooperation and innovative efforts to
ensure greater private sector responsibility for consumer protection.”
