Jennifer Jacquet

JENNIFER JACQUET is a postdoctoral fellow at UBC, where she also did her Ph.D. Her research interests are in environmental sustainability (particularly fish), the evolution and function of guilt, honor, and shame, and the role of information technology in shaping environmental action -- all of which fall under a broad interest in the tragedy of the commons. With colleagues from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology and UBC's Math Department, she is currently conducting a series of experiments to study the effect of honor and shame on cooperation.
