Greer’s research combines experimental and behavioural economics to reveal cost-effective climate change mitigation strategies at the microeconomic level. Her current projects focus on the contexts of commercial fuel efficiency (especially in the aviation industry), residential energy and resource use, environmental health decisions, and global climate change negotiations.
She graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Economics and a BA (Hons) in Political Science from Loyola Marymount University in 2011, where she used experimental methods to study the effects of information and norms on common-pool resource extraction. Subsequently, Greer completed her MSc in Environmental Economics and Climate Change and her Ph.D. in Environmental Economics at LSE. Her dissertations analyzed a number of lab and field experiments aimed at minimizing the extent of prominent environmental externalities.
