Centers & Institutes:
Research Associate, Precourt Energy Efficiency Center
Area of Work:
Behavior & Energy
» Serving as Project Director for the Stanford Energy Behavior Initiative, which is funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Energy (ARPA-E). This Initiative focuses on how we can leverage sensor data, like that from smart meters, in combination with behavioral approaches to maximize energy savings.
» Preparing an integrative review that identifies the most effective behavior change techniques from multiple disciplines so that they may be translated and applied to addressing climate change.
» Developing tools for measuring climate change relevant behaviors, for use in evaluating the efficacy of behavior change interventions, and in providing feedback to individuals.
» Developing a "Behavior and Energy" website and literature database, which serves as a central repository for research on climate relevant behavior, and also serves as the official website for the Behavior, Energy, and Climate Change conferences.
Supplemental Materials: High School Energy Curriculum We designed, implemented and experimentally evaluated a theory-based, school based, energy and behavior change curriculum for high school.
