Nathan Kettle is an expert in climate adaptation, knowledge co-production, and evaluation. He collaborates with researchers and decision makers to develop science that is more relevant, credible, and legitimate.
His research interests include coastal climate adaptation, use-inspired science, the role of networks in supporting climate adaptation, and evaluation. Kettle has worked extensively with coastal planners in Alaska to understand expectations of climate change, the role of risk, uncertainty, and trust in support for planning, and cross-level differences in the timing of support for coastal climate adaptation planning. His research on networks includes a social network analysis of the climate-science practice interface in Alaska, the role of remote engagement in supporting boundary chain networks, and how climate webinars may be used to support knowledge to action networks across Alaska.
