He is also interested in the communication of science, working with the GMU Center for Climate Change Communication and Skeptical Science to understand and improve public understanding of climate science.In addition to his academic work at GMU, Peter also works with the National Park Service on sea level rise adaptation and NASA’s DEVELOP program on forecasting changes in invasive species extent.
