Hello and welcome to my website!
I am Laurie, a graduate student at The City University of New York, The Graduate Center. Currently I am working towards my PhD in Environmental Psychology. Right now I am working on a research project about simple living, featured on this website.
Broadly, my research interests include alternative lifestyles, ecocentric worldviews, consumption, and possibilities for long-term sustainability. I am also committed to learning how digital media and presence assists in knowledge creation, consciousness raising, and lifestyle choices.
Prior to enrolling at the Graduate Center I lived in Philadelphia and worked as a research technician on several substance abuse research studies at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
