Hilary is interested in how people respond to incentives in making decisions that affect the environment. She applies insights from behavioral economics to advance nature conservation and human wellbeing.
Previously, Hilary has researched agricultural development and drought vulnerability across India and lived in Gujarat. Prior to graduate school, she worked for an international grant-making organization that funds grassroots environmental projects. A Colorado native, Hilary feels at home knee-deep in snow in the thin Rocky Mountain air.
