Postdoctoral Scholar


Ph.D. Candidate in Sustainable Development ​Columbia University

I am a behavioral economist and social/personality psychologist focusing on reducing human biases and promoting prosocial behaviors. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in sustainable development at Columbia University in June 2021. My major research interests have two aspects: (1) behavioral intervention and social networks, focusing on how to use information provisions, nudges, and other behavioral measures to promote communities towards more sustainable behaviors; (2) cultural, personality, and decision making, focusing on how cultural and personality differences impact human decisions and people's interaction with the environment.
