Carrie Armel

Researcher, Stanford

As a Research Associate at Stanford's Precourt Energy Efficiency Center, Carrie Armel investigates the diverse ways in which an understanding of human behavior can lead to improvements in energy efficiency. She also teaches courses at Stanford, co-chairs the Behavior, Energy, and Climate Change Conference, and oversees Precourt Institute’s Behavior and Energy Bibliographic database and website. Outside of her strictly academic work, Armel develops specific energy efficiency interventions that apply behavioral and design principles, and develops measures to evaluate the efficacy of such interventions.

Armel completed a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of California at San Diego, and postdoctoral work in Neuro-Economics at Stanford.
