I am an environmental and labor economist at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) and a Research Affiliate at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Currently, I am also a Senior Advisor at the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA). I use theory and data to study how forecasts and other types of information affect actions in settings including adaptation to climate change, risk-taking in research, and time use. These days, I am especially fascinated by how people perceive and use routine weather forecasts—an decades-long information intervention that goes on every hour of the day, all around the world.
