Social Science for Climate Change
Susan Moser

My Partners and Clients

Most of my work is done in collaborative projects. I have led and co-led teams ranging in size and composition from a couple of colleagues to dozens of collaborators of varying backgrounds. I specialize in multi- and interdisciplinary research projects, and in transdisciplinary efforts that simultaneously integrate and advance scientific understanding and foster policy and decision-making.
