Event Description

Shahzeen Attari’s research focuses on people's judgments and decisions about climate change and resource use. She has investigated how people think about energy and water use, how people conceptualize the water system, and is currently studying how to use stories to fuse facts and feelings to motivate action on climate change. She is an Andrew Carnegie Fellow and an Associate Professor at the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) at Indiana University Bloomington. She was a postdoctoral fellow at the Earth Institute and the Center for Research on Environmental Decisions (CRED) at Columbia University.
