ABOUT

cropped-me_smaller.jpgI recently relocated to New Haven, Connecticut to work as a Postdoctoral Associate at the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. I am deeply passionate about human rights and environmental issues. In general, my areas of specialization in research include (1) attitudes and emotions; (2) social influence and persuasion; (3) climate change communication; and (4) environmental psychology, including the determinants of individual and collective action on climate issues (e.g., investing in clean energy or energy efficient products, supporting climate policy). I also have experience in the evaluation of energy efficiency programs. Check out my research page to read more about my research interests and work.

In my leisure time, I usually have to be outside. Some of my favorite places to visit are Sequoia National Park, anywhere in Alaska, and northern Michigan (I’m a Michigander born and raised in Metro Detroit). I also like to document the beauty of the world in the form of pictures–check out some of my photographs here!
