I am the behavioral science lead at the Center for Behavior & the Environment at Rare, directing the Center’s research agenda. I focus on bridging the academic-practice gap through collaborations with research partners and environmental practitioners within and outside of Rare. 

Previous to joining the Center, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania Center for Social Norms & Behavioral Dynamics, developing measurement and behavioral intervention strategies in the development sector and teaching behavioral economics. I completed a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and received my PhD and MA from the Psychology department at the University of Pennsylvania, under the advising of Professor Cristina Bicchieri in the Behavioral Lab. I received my BA in the Cognition and Brain stream of the Cognitive Systems program at the University of British Columbia.
