Well-Being Innovation Lab

With Irrational Labs and the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, I am integrating research from well-being and happiness, behavioral science, and systems thinking to create a one-of-a-kind Well-Being Innovation Lab.

Whole Person Economy

Working to create a think-and-do-tank that is focused on designing long-term systems through programs and investments.

Equilibrium’s Sustainability Framework

At Equilibrium, I was the Director of Sustainability and led the creation of a sustainability strategy that addresses about $2 billion of assets with the core thesis of linking sustainability and economics.

Low-Carbon Cities / Energy Foundation

For Energy Foundation’s Low Carbon Cities Program, I worked on two internal strategy papers to define their approach to implement carbon reduction measures across 200 cities in China.  For these strategies, I worked closely with Dongquan He, VP of Programs and Zhigao Wang, the Program Director of the Low Carbon Cities Program.

Rural Energy Alternatives in India

In 2014, I successfully proposed and designed a Graduate Workshop at Princeton University on rural energy alternatives. Our research group reviewed hundreds of sources and traveled to India to interview dozens of government officials, NGO’s, intellectuals, and villagers in Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi, and Pune on what would make distributed energy alternatives viable in rural India. Our report can be found here. This report has now been cited in numerous books and papers, including publications from ADB, USAID, and other peer-reviewed publications.
