Experience: Mark's research broadly concerns the use of scientific information in complex decision processes. More specifically, he develops methods and models that integrate knowledge and data across disciplines to support environmental and human health policy and management. He uses multiattribute utility theory to relate these predictions to the preferences and risk attitudes of decision-makers, organizations, and the public.
