Catherine holds an MSc Psychology of Economic Life with Distinction from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). In this course, she learned to both understand and shape economic behaviour by exploring key thinkers and theories, recent research, and new approaches in behavioural architecture. While at LSE, Catherine completed her empirical dissertation on the relationship between social class, prosocial behaviour, and economic inequality in the US, utilising large national datasets and personally collected survey data.
She earned her bachelor’s degree from Pomona College in the US. She graduated magna cum laude with majors in economics and neuroscience, providing her with the foundation for an interdisciplinary approach to behavioural science.
Catherine is passionate about using insights from social psychology, behavioral economics, and behavioral science to understand and improve economic decision-making, organizations, and socioeconomic systems.
