Undergrad RAs Sophie Manaster and Renna Wittum are both taking part in exciting internship programs this summer! Sophie is working at Corporate Accountability in Boston, MA doing research focused on increasing clean water access in communities. Renna is working at the Ohio EPA as a Storm Water/Permitting Intern in the Division of Surface Water.
In the latter part of Spring semester, Nicole was awarded with Excellence in Undergraduate Research Mentoring from OSU’s Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Inquiry. Undergrad RA Sophie Manaster, who nominated Nicole for the award, said, “Nicole is an amazing mentor and role model, our lab is so lucky to work with her and learn from her.” The rest of the lab shares the same sentiments J. Congrats, Nicole!
Congratulations to Ian Adams on the successful defense of his master’s thesis, entitled “Pride, Guilt, and Pro-Environmental Behavior: The Role of Experienced Self-Conscious Emotions in an Individual’s Response to Carbon Footprint Feedback”. We’re proud of you!

Nicole and Lee attended the Behavior Energy & Climate Change conference in Washington DC a couple of weeks ago. Lee gave two presentations, sharing results from the Energy Interactions and Time-of-Use projects. Nicole was on a Department of Energy-led panel focused on similarities and differences in consumer decision-making regarding energy efficiency vs. renewables, in which she shared insights from several of the lab’s projects. As always, BECC was a delightful event for learning about exciting new work, meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends, and even some running and yoga. Looking forward to next year’s BECC in Sacramento!
