“Climate Change Advocacy and Ad Hominem Attacks”

Shahzeen Attari‘s research focuses on the psychology of resource use and climate change. Her work draws on cognitive and environmental science, and focuses on perceptions, motivations, and biases of how people understand complex systems and how to motivate behavior change. She is an Associate Professor at the 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. She holds a PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering & Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University, and a Bachelors of Science in Engineering Physics from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is currently an Andrew Carnegie Fellow.

This event is part of the Duck Family Colloquium series. The Center for Environmental Politics organizes a monthly colloquium series on environmental politics, policy, and governance. This series is made possible by the generous support of Gary and Susan Duck, UW alumni and long-standing benefactors of the department. Susan passed away in December 2015 after a prolonged illness. We miss her a lot.
