Emory Nelms

Emory was born in Ohio, grew up in Southern Illinois, and finished Le Tour de Midwest in Wisconsin, where he attended Beloit College. His work at CAH is primarily around translating research into practice, and he particularly focuses on how to use behavioral economics to improve financial products and services. Prior to CAH, Emory worked at Higher Achievement and on the research team at CFED, both in Washington, D.C. Outside of the Center, Emory can almost certainly be found enjoying anything to do with baseball, playing with his dog, or finishing his Masters in Public Policy at Duke.
