Kaitlin T. Raimi is an assistant professor of public policy at the Ford School. Her interests center on how social motivations can promote or prevent sustainable behaviors. Her research is focused on how people compare their own beliefs and behaviors to those of other people, how the desire to make a good impression can influence people to mitigate climate change, and how one adopting one sustainable behavior affects subsequent behaviors. She received her an MA and PhD in social psychology from Duke University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Vanderbilt Institute for Energy & Environment at Vanderbilt University.
