In 1996 David organized the effort to design the first substantially green building on a U.S. college campus. The Adam Joseph Lewis Center was later named by the U.S. Department of Energy as “One of Thirty Milestone Buildings in the 20th Century.” He has served on the National Advisory Committee of the Presidential Climate Action Project, and is a Trustee of Rocky Mountain Institute and Bioneers.

Orr is a frequent lecturer at colleges and universities throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia.
While at Oberlin, he spearheaded the effort to design, fund, and build the Adam Joseph Lewis Center, which was named by an AIA panel in 2010 as “the most important green building of the past 30 years,” and as “one of 30 milestone buildings of the twentieth century” by the U.S. Department of Energy and was instrumental in funding the Peter B.

From Miranda Yaver Website: I am a political scientist who in June 2019-2021 is a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Fielding School of Public Health at the University of California, Los Angeles through the Los Angeles Area Health Services Research Training Program to conduct research on US health policy. In this capacity, I am conducting research on the ways in which political conditions shape the impact that policies have on public health outcomes, reproductive health policy, and nationwide survey research on health insurance utilization and related challenges of inequality stemming from insurer behavior in claim processing. I have additionally conducted survey research on the impact of COVID-19 on health care utilization, mental health, and access to sexual and reproductive health care.
Prior to this position, I was a Lecturer in Political Science at Tufts University, where I taught courses on American politics, public policy, and public law. In the 2016-17 academic year, I was a Lecturer in Political Science at Yale University, where I taught courses on American politics and quantitative methodology. In the 2015-2016 academic year, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. I completed my PhD in Political Science at Columbia University in 2015, with emphases in American Politics (major subfield) and Methodology (minor subfield). My dissertation, "When Do Agencies Have Agency? Bureaucratic Noncompliance and Dynamic Lawmaking in the United States, 1973-2010," examines the conditions under which administrative agencies implement in ways that provoke constraints from Congress and the courts, often for behavior that I refer to as noncompliance.
My op-eds and other health care commentary has appeared in the New York TimesThe GuardianWashington Post's Monkey Cage BlogRewire NewsPublic SeminarBustleThe Conversation, Medium, and KevinMD, and I have appeared on France 24 and CBC News to discuss American politics and policy. I was a 2013-14 Democracy and Markets Fellow at the Tobin Project. Prior to graduate school, I was engaged in political science and methodology research at UC Berkeley (go bears!), assisted with ESL and writing workshops in San Francisco, and worked on Democratic political campaigns as well as voting rights advocacy in Washington DC. A San Francisco Bay Area native, I received a B.A. with honors in Political Science from UC Berkeley in 2009. In addition to doing American politics and health policy research, I am a stand-up comedian who has performed comedy throughout New York City, New Haven, Boston, and Los Angeles. When not working or performing, I enjoy doing creative writing, catching live music, and watching sports (go NY Yankees, SF Giants, and Golden State Warriors!).
