These are the things I care the most about.
That's when I came up with the idea of using a behavioral economics framework for preventative interventions and as a new way to think of the connection between human behavior, architectural design, and wellness. I was taken by the notion that assuming we are always choosing in an optimal way with regards to our own health might not be true. And, since we can be limited and unaware of how our actions shape our lives, we are likely to benefit from design that corrects any failures.
I co-authored an award-winning book about it that included both rational and behavioral choice and began speaking at conferences and lecturing at universities. And I started a consulting practice using the ideas in Choice Theory to approach design in a broad way in any places that human beings are engaged in making healthy decisions.
