I'm endlessly curious. Whether it's exploring new subjects or delving deeper into familiar ones, I delight in figuring out how things work and how they can work better. And I love solving tough problems...preferably with clever folks who like to laugh.

I’m fascinated by user experience, behavioral economics, how we learn, and how design can be used to improve how cities work and people live. My program at Brookings focuses on helping states and cities make their economies work better for everyone.

I'm have extensive experience conducting research, writing, facilitating discussion, managing projects, and communicating ideas to diverse audiences.
