Bio

gretchen-goldman-200px.jpg

As an analyst at the Center for Science and Democracy at UCS, Gretchen Goldman researches influences and interference in how science is used in decision making around public policy. Gretchen is an author of the 2012 UCS report, A Climate of Corporate Control and three 2013 UCS reports including Grading Government Transparency: Scientists Freedom to Speak (and Tweet) at Federal Agencies, Assessing Trade and Business Groups’ Positions on Climate Change, and Toward an Evidence-based Fracking Debate.

Dr. Goldman came to UCS from the Georgia Institute of Technology where she was a postdoctoral research fellow working on statistical modeling of urban air pollution for use in epidemiologic studies of acute human health effects. She has three first-author publications in this area and has presented her research at several international academic conferences.  She has worked at the Northeast Regional Climate Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and interned with National Exposure Research Laboratory at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. 

Dr. Goldman holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in Environmental Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a B.S. in Atmospheric Science from Cornell University.
