Current Research Interests: 

Weber specializes in American political institutions, regulation, bureaucracy, and public policy. His research focuses on the role of bureaucracy and regulation in a democracy, and recent attempts to reinvent government and bring society back into the governing process, particularly the growing use of innovative regulatory programs, new ways to organize and control bureaucracy, and collaborative governance frameworks. Virtually all of these endeavors focus on the field of environmental/ natural resource policy, especially water resource policy, watershed governance, and sustainability.
