Assistant Professor of Public Policy, Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy
Kaitlin T. Raimi is an assistant professor of public policy at the Ford School. A social psychologist, her interests center on how social motivations have the potential to promote or prevent sustainable behaviors. While completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the Vanderbilt Institute for Energy & Environment at Vanderbilt University, Raimi’s research 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 environmental decisions. She received an MA and Ph.D. in social psychology from Duke University.
