Role: CCI collaborative projects, Project team member


I am a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor at Johns Hopkins University. I collaborate with scientists, lawyers, engineers, and program administrators to develop evidence-based environmental programs and to understand causal relationships, both natural and anthropogenic, in complex environments. My research aims to incorporate insights from the behavioral and social sciences into the designs of public programs and to measure program impacts on the environment and human welfare. I am particularly interested in elucidating the environmental and behavioral mechanisms through which environmental problems arise and through which environmental programs are successful.
