About me

I am a Psychologist and Researcher focusing on Behavior Design. I design, implement, and evaluate choice environments that guide people's decision-making journeys.

In my PhD, I investigate behavioral interventions to conserve energy and water in everyday life. My approach involves translating behavioral insights into effective socio-technological systems and prioritizing user needs and organizational challenges to create practical solutions.

Beyond designing, I test these systems through interviews and large-scale field experiments to investigate their effectiveness.
Outside the lab, I actively teach, coach, and conduct workshops for professionals. I believe in the power of collaboration and the value of diverse perspectives, and I'm always eager to share knowledge and learn from others.
