Dani Grodsky is an Associate at Ideas42. Currently, her focus is on improving student outcomes throughout postsecondary education by applying a behavioral lens. She recently graduated from Brown University, where she majored in Cognitive Neuroscience with a smaller focus on Economics. She also has experience in science communication and event planning, writing for the Brown Medical School magazine and TED.com, and helping to organize the annual TEDxProvidence conference. Her quirkiest job was working at a bridal shop featured on reality television, and if she had an alter ego she would be a makeup artist for runway shows.
