I am the behavioral science lead at the Center for Behavior and 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 Social Norms Group, 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 Ethics Lab. I received my BA in the Cognition and Brain stream of the Cognitive Systems program at the University of British Columbia.
