Every major and minor sustainability problem we face has people at its core. Social science is how we can best understand why people think what they think and do what they do. Yet, this knowledge is too often underappreciated, ignored, and misapplied as sustainability solutions are designed and implemented. Accordingly, many efforts fail or are derailed, most especially in lower-resource settings where options for effective solutions are fewer to begin with. My fundamental mission is to help fix this disconnect.

My research teams are using two sentinel problems as a concrete way to move this agenda broader forward. One focuses on how and why effective public and private anti-obesity efforts are undermined by weight stigma. This stigma is damaging and distressing for millions, is rapidly spreading globally. The other considers how people are understanding and responding to severe weather challenges, especially water shortage and poor water quality. Water issues are a complex, major rising challenge everywhere, and they can have both major negative financial and emotional repercussions for families. Water shortages, because they impact hygiene, also have a serious and underappreciated stigma effect that creates massive illness and undermines sanitation efforts around the globe. You can read our blog on stigma and global health at lazycrazydisgusting.com.

More generally, we need better social research methods for understanding people's lives in low-resource settings. Our team is currently working to test and share better social science methods for recognizing and supporting community goals and concerns into international development. Much of this effort is via the Global Impact Collaboratory in partnership with the Center for Global Health. We are working to improve how we demonstrate "success" in projects meant to make lives better through such efforts as monitoring and evaluation.

As an educator, I am a passionate promoter of experiential education like study abroad, research apprenticeships, and field programs. I am especially proud to have led the team that devised and launched the nation's first and now largest global health undergraduate degree.
