Decision Architecture

Decision architecture, environmental conservation and effective approaches to behavior change

Over the past 10 years, a powerful set of tools for encouraging positive environmental, financial and health-related decision-making has emerged at the nexus of psychology and economics: decision (or choice) architecture (DA). Working with other DA experts at Columbia and elsewhere, I am currently working on a number of experimental and integrative projects that push our understanding of the effective and appropriate use of these tools for promoting environmental behavior change.
