About Emiliana Simon-Thomas

Emiliana Simon-Thomas, PhD is the Science Director at UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center (GGSC). She runs the GGSC’s campus research fellowship programs and directs key initiatives like Expanding the Science and Practice of Gratitude and Person-Activity Fit for Online Happiness Practices. She also co-teaches both the Science of Happiness and the Science of Happiness at Work Professional Certificate Series courses.

Alongside her academic and popular publications Emiliana co-edited the transdisciplinary Oxford Handbook of Compassion Science, and serves as the executive director of the UC Berkeley-UCSF-Harvard branch of the NIH funded Science of Emotional Well-being Network. Emiliana also advises organizations – from a climate, product, and policy perspective – on why and how to promote well-being. Sharing practical strategies that can be implemented across multiple contexts and settings, Emiliana offers actionable insights that can measurably improve three key drivers of happiness: social connection, positive emotion, and resilience to stress.

An international expert voice on the foundations and advantages of prosocial states and behaviors and research-backed approaches to strengthening emotional well-being, Emiliana’s work leverages scientific insights to help people live better lives individually, in relationships with others, within organizations and communities, and society-wide.

The cost of tickets for this program has been generously underwritten by the sponsors of the Blauvelt Speaker Series. 

The Blauvelt Speaker Series is funded in part by the generosity of the late Bradford Thomas & Eleanor G. Blauvelt and the Wintrode Family Foundation.
