My research focuses on the interplay between individual behavior and institutions with a particular interest in identifying environmental policies that are both effective and feasible. Much of this work employs experimental methods to inform our efforts to address local and global collective action problems. Recent projects investigate the implications of solar geoengineering for strategic behavior and climate governance.
