I study the gap between what we know is good for our health, wallet, and the environment, and what we individually do. I design quantitative laboratory and field studies on attitudes and behavior in social contexts. For example, social identities such as political affiliation and motivations such as the desire to feel good about ourselves can predict responses to framed messages and to collective action problems like climate change.
