Stacy Blondin is a Behavioral Science Associate conducting field and online research applying behavior change approaches to encourage consumers to shift towards more sustainable diets. She is managing a series of randomized controlled trials (RCTs), both online and in the field, that aim to identify candidate approaches to shift consumer norms concerning food waste, and to determine their effect on end-consumer perceptions and behavior.

Prior to joining WRI, she completed her doctoral degree at Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy in Food Policy and Applied Nutrition. She conducted her dissertation research on dietary sustainability within the national school meal programs, with a focus on food waste and plant-based meals.

Most recently, Stacy completed a three-year postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, where she led several consumer behavior interventions to reduce the environmental impact of campus food operations in the U.S.

She also holds a MSPH degree in International Health & Nutrition from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and BA in Psychology from Harvard College, where she also served as a program representative for the Office for Sustainability and Food Literacy Project.

Having been born on Earth Day, she has had a lifelong love for and commitment to protecting the natural environment.
