ABOUT ME

I am a researcher at Kraks Fond – Institute for Urban Economic Research, PhD student in Social and Behavioral Data Science at the University of Copenhagen and a former US-Denmark Fulbright Fellow. I have a Master’s degree in Human Environment Relations from Cornell University.

I study how changes in the technologies we interact with, including the environments we live in, shape our behavior, wellbeing and experience over the lifespan. My current research examines how global and local environmental changes may impact public life, health, beliefs and behavior across geographic scales ranging from buildings and cities, to countries and continents.
