I utilize experimental methods to study belief traps – how inaccurate beliefs drive negative outcomes for the environment, organizations, politics. I examine the psychological and social roots of belief traps, how they contribute to organizational inaction and political conflict, and how they can be combated through targeted interventions.
I am an Associate Research Scholar at Princeton University in the Behavioral Science for Policy Lab in the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, where I research the psychology of climate change belief traps under Dr. Elke Weber. I am also affiliated with the Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment in the Princeton School for Public and International Affairs.
In August of 2020 I founded the Union of Democratic Laboratories, and scientific society and advocacy group.
I completed my Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and Psychology at Harvard Business School in 2020.
