Shahzeen Attari's TEDxBloomington talk conveys her research focusing on the psychology of resource consumption. Her work at the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs seeks to understand how people think about their use resources and what factors motivate conservation of electricity and water. Her paper entitled "Public perceptions of energy consumption and savings" published in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences saw attention from mainstream media outlets, including The Economist, New York Times, CNN, and BBC. She holds a Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering & Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University, and a B.S. in Engineering Physics from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

About TEDx, x=independently organized event. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
