2020 APPAM Mentors

Back by popular demand, the Mentor Matching Program connects a diverse group of policy academics and researchers with student members at our Fall 2020 Virtual Research Conference. Participants in the 2020 program are invited to connect virtually during the conference. We would like to thank our members who have volunteered to serve as a mentor for 2020. You may review the mentor biographies, by program area, below.

If you are an APPAM student member who is interested in receiving mentoring, you will need to review the list of mentors below and complete the mentor matching program application. You will be asked to provide your top four choices for mentors as well as area of interest and type of mentoring interested in. Pairing is done on a first come, first served basis and will begin the first week of September. If a mentor is marked as *MATCHED*, do not include them in your top four choices. In the event that one of your top four choices is not available, matching will be based on research interest and type of mentoring sought.

Interested in getting involved as a mentor? Follow us on twitter and check APPAM.org next summer for details on the 2021 Mentor Matching Program.

For more information, check the Mentor Matching Program page or contact Ryan Martz at rmartz@appam.org with any questions or concerns. Please note: the deadline to fill out a mentee application is October 16th 2020, and announcements will be made later in October.

Prefer to Mentor: Either

I volunteered to mentor because grad-level job search has a bunch of peculiar norms, and I’d like to help you negotiate some of them. I am interested in/have researched many areas of policy. But my primary interest is urban environmental policy with a particular emphasis on environmental injustice (EI). Urban environmental policy matters because more than half of the world's people now live in cities. I became focused on EI because the fact that pollution exposure depends on race/ethnicity offends me and my ideals for this country. Researching EI policy lets me use my skills toward improving social justice.

My name is Dr. Lily Hsueh. I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Public Affairs, Arizona State University. As an economist and public policy scholar, my research bridges the fields of economics, public policy, and management to investigate how the environment and the global commons are managed and the ways in which behaviors of firms and organizations are shaped by multiple forces from markets to government policies. I bring a multi-methodological approach to this agenda, combining diverse tools in order to leverage new data and empirics for causal inference and to explore causal mechanisms. Outlets for my published work have included Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists; Governance; Journal of Regulatory Economics; Journal of Environmental Management; Environmental Science & Policy; Regulation & Governance, among others. In 2020-21, I have been awarded an American Fellowship by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to work on my book-in-progress, "Corporations at the Climate Crossroads: Multilevel Governance and Global Climate Action." My book is under contract with MIT Press. I enjoyed serving as an APPAM Faculty Mentor during 2019-20 and am looking forward to another great year!

I have had some very good mentors, but could have benefited from building better relationships and networking with people outside of my department earlier in my career. Plus, it is always good to have the perspective of someone with a bit of distance as you finish your PhD studies and begin your academic career. Hopefully I can help young scholars with this given my perspective from working at very different types of institutions and publishing in a wide range of journals in political science, public policy and public administration.

I've had something of a "nontraditional" career path in public policy. After completing my masters, I began working at a think tank and later in government. Eventually, I went back to school to complete my Phd. I then taught at a medium-sized university for 20 years -- only to return to a full-time research position in a think tank. I currently work in philanthropy. In other words, if you are planning to map your life out for the next four decades, I'm not that person. If you are weighing a couple of different possible paths, it might be interesting for us to talk.
