About

I am a PhD candidate at the Center for Industrial Ecology at Yale University. My research focuses on consumer behavior and decision making, and their implications for sustainability.  

Working with mentors from the School of Forestry as well as Yale's School of Management, I combine analysis of large datasets with macro scale behavioral experiments to explore things that people care deeply about - their smartphones and what they eat.

Before attending Yale I was a consultant to the Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection and the leader of the joint ministerial project for well-being indicators. Prior to my work on well-being, I was awarded a Koret-Milken institute fellowship where I focused on green building policy and sustainable consumerism.
