Dr. John Tracy, Texas Water Resources Institute director, was recently selected as a fellow for the Institute for Science, Technology and Public Policy (ISTPP). He was one of 12 faculty members, 10 from Texas A&M University and two from other universities, chosen in January 2019 as part of the ISTPP Fellows Program.
The ISTPP is a nonpartisan interdisciplinary public policy research institute of the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M.
Fellows are chosen for a three-year term and are selected based on their involvement and collaborative working relationships with the ISTPP on interdisciplinary proposals, funded projects and publications as well as distinguished accomplishments within the individual's discipline.
According to Dr. Kent Portney, ISTPP director, Tracy was selected because of collaborative work on several projects coordinated by ISTPP. One of these projects, the United States–Mexico Transboundary Water Governance Initiative, focused on how water policy and management decisions are made on both sides of the border.
“Our collaborations on water governance and transboundary water protection opens important and interesting avenues of research for the institute,” Portney said, adding that he looks forward to building on these efforts.
