Clark A. Miller is Associate Director of Science in the Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes at Arizona State University. Clark is the editor of Changing the Atmosphere: Expert Knowledge and Environmental Governance (MIT Press: 2001) and has published extensively on the politics of knowledge-making in international institutions, theories of civic epistemology and co-production, and the intersection of science and democracy in contemporary society. His current project is an analysis of the epistemological and institutional organization of security in world affairs from 1945 to the present, focusing on a comparative study of the World Health Organization, the International Monetary Fund, and the International Atomic Energy Agency.
