Public Policy (Ford)

Kaitlin T. Raimi is an associate professor of public policy at the Ford School. As a social/environmental psychologist, her interests center on how individuals can promote or prevent sustainable behaviors and policies. She has three broad areas of research: (1) how people compare their own beliefs and behaviors to others, (2) how adopting one pro-environmental behavior affects later action, and (3) how climate change communication affects people’s understanding, behaviors, and support for climate policies and technologies. 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.
