Dr. Holbrook's current research focuses on interdisciplinarity and the relationship between science, technology, and society. He is especially interested in the incorporation of societal impacts considerations into the peer review process of publicly supported funding agencies (e.g., NSF's "Broader Impacts" Merit Review Criterion), as well as the integration of "the social" with "the ecological" (e.g., the difference between Long Term Ecological Research and Long Term Socio-Ecological Research). Holbrook is Assistant Director of UNT's Center for the Study of Interdisciplinarity and Research Assistant Professor within UNT's Department of Philosophy and Religion Studies.
