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 am currently a working at the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication and adjuncting at Saddleback College. 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!
