Jonathan B. Wiener
Jonathan is a professor at Duke University, where he teaches courses on risk regulation, climate change, and property law, and co-directs the Duke Center on Risk in the Science & Society Initiative. He has co-led several Bass Connections projects on climate change and global risks. He is also a university fellow of Resources for the Future (RFF), an advisory member of the International Risk Governance Council (IRGC), and a past president of the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA). His publications related to this project include the book Risk vs. Risk (1995), and the articles The Tragedy of the Uncommons (2016) and Learning to Manage the Multirisk World (2020). Before coming to Duke, he worked in the US government on environmental law and policy, climate change, risk regulation, forests conservation, and national & community service. He has wanted to go to the Moon and Mars for as long as he can remember -- at least since his dad was a consultant to NASA in the late 1960s.
