ABOUT

Hi there! Thanks for your interest in my portfolio. I work at the intersection of gender, behavioral science, and journalism. I’m currently a senior associate at the behavioral science design firm ideas42 and the managing editor at the Behavioral Scientist, a digital magazine that makes behavioral science research more accessible to the general public. Previously, as a senior fellow at the think tank New America, I founded its Global Gender Parity Initiative. I’m also a collaborator at the strategic consulting firm Artemis Connection, where I’ve advised companies on diversity, equity and inclusion strategy.

 

One of my favorite things to do is to share my work with broad audiences. I’ve presented my work to the Gates Foundation, SXSW, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, PayScale and others. And I regularly publish multimedia stories in outlets like Slate, the Atlantic, CNN, Quartz, the Chicago Tribune, Pacific Standard, Time, the Financial Times, and others.

 

I’ve worked on the editorial staffs of the Atlantic, Slate, and Qatar Today magazine, based in Doha. In 2013, I won a fellowship through UpStart to launch a social enterprise – TRIBELLE – which empowered low-income Israeli artisan entrepreneurs. In 2016, I was selected to be part of the American-German Young Leaders Conference, an initiative of the American Council on Germany.

A native of the Chicago suburbs, I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area. When I’m not working, you can find me on a hike or searching tirelessly for the best cookies in the East Bay.
