I am a researcher, an educator and a practitioner. Broadly speaking, I’m interested in uncovering and sharing the insights that the behavioral sciences (e.g., psychology, sociology, anthropology, communication) have to offer when it comes to confronting the major environmental, social and public health issues we face. My background is in psychology, communication and sustainability.

I completed my PhD in Environmental Sciences, Studies and Policy at the University of Oregon in 2012. After completing post-doctoral fellowships at Princeton and Columbia, I joined the faculty at UMass Amherst in the Department of Environmental Conservation where I serve as Assistant Professor of Environmental Decision-Making.
