I am an affiliate at Harvard University’s Belfer Center, where I completed my postdoctoral training in 2017. I am also an affiliate at the Harvard University Center for the Environment and am a Human-Environmental Systems Fellow at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. I received my PhD in political science from the University of California San Diego in 2016.
In my work, I combine my interests in climate change and human behavior with my affinity for social scientific and computational methods.
Another branch of my research focuses on climate change attitudes. A recent project examined the role of collective versus personal responsibility in climate-related political behaviors. Another investigates how climate change political attitudes may be altered by exposure to extreme weather. I have also identified political hurdles to climate policies in Sub-Saharan Africa.
