On October 11, 2014, UBC Psychology professor Elizabeth Dunn presented her research at TEDxColoradoSprings, produced independently of the TED Conferences.
Dr. Dunn is the author of Happy Money: The Science of Smarter Spending, co-authored with Mike Norton at Harvard Business School. Dr. Dunn conducts original research on self-knowledge and happiness, with a current focus on how people can use their money more effectively to increase well-being.
Her work has been featured in hundreds of media outlets, including The New York Times, The Globe and Mail, and The London Times, and has even been cited in policy papers by David Cameron’s administration in the UK. Two empirical papers were recently published in Science. Dunn has spoken at PopTech!, and was selected as a Chronicle of Higher Education “Rising Star” in academia.
