I’m a PhD candidate at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government studying behavioral and environmental economics in the Public Policy program. I work with Todd Rogers, Joe Aldy and Rob Stavins to better understand how consumers use information to form opinions and make decisions related to climate change and energy efficiency.
I design experiments to help better understand human behavior. I teach Harvard students about the beauty, power and shortfalls of economics. And in my spare time, I help people personally connect to this issue of climate change with the organization I co-founded, DearTomorrow.
I play the cello and the mandolin. I like to climb rocks and walls. I love to dance, especially with my husband. I love to be outside, ideally surrounded by more nature than concrete.
