Johanna Matt-Navarro

Behavioral Decision Making Ph.D. Student
"'My research interests focus on behavior and social change — how individual behaviors and group-level dynamics develop and interact with one another, and how this interaction can be used to precipitate lasting change. I’m particularly interested in applying emerging methodological approaches, such as machine learning text analysis techniques, to these questions. I’m invested in studying and leveraging these insights in applied contexts, and believe behavioral science is at its most exciting and effective when working in conjunction with policy and system change frameworks. Please reach out if you’d like to chat!"
