Doug joined Sonoma Technology in 1995 after serving as the Mobile Sources Section Chief for U.S. EPA, Region 9. He has worked on air quality issues since 1986. He helps lead Sonoma Technology’s efforts to support community-based air quality projects under California’s landmark 2017 legislation, Assembly Bill 617, and through Supplemental Environmental Projects (SEPs) funded by industry and government settlement agreements. He oversaw Sonoma Technology’s research for the Near-Road Air Quality Transportation Pooled Fund, which was supported by eight federal and state agencies. Resources for the Future (RFF) Press published his book, Smog Check: Science, Federalism, and the Politics of Clean Air, with a Foreword by Mary Nichols, following his appointment as an RFF Fellow in Environmental Regulatory Implementation.

He is a nationally recognized expert in the transportation-air quality arena, a highly rated professor, and an aficionado of all things Hawaiian.

Doug is the former Chair of the U.S. Transportation Research Board (TRB) Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Committee, under the U.S. National Academies. He is an Affiliate Professor for the University of Washington Master of Sustainable Transportation Program, and has taught about air quality, climate, and public policy for 20 years at the University of Hawaii.
