Dr. Baldwin researches polycentric environmental policy, and is particularly interested in the institutional arrangements that are used to involve diverse actors in environmental decision-making, whether and why those arrangements help communities solve environmental problems, and how those arrangements change and evolve over time. Current research projects focus on the governance of invasive buffelgrass in the Sonoran Desert, and on electrification strategies in Kenya. Baldwin earned her Ph.D. in 2015 from the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University-Bloomington, where she was a research assistant at the Ostrom Workshop on Political Theory and Policy Analysis. She also holds a J.D. from the Indiana University Maurer School of Law and a B.S. in Environmental Policy from Unity College. Baldwin’s work has been published in outlets including the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Public Administration Review, Governance, and Policy Studies Journal.
