Rimma Teper is an applied behavioral scientist and social psychologist. After completing her PhD, she became the Resident Behavioral Scientist at Idea Couture. There she helped build the behavioral science team from the ground up, working on consumer research projects with key clients including Samsung, United Way, Kroger, and more. After, she moved Research Strategy Group as VP of Client Strategy and Behavioral Science, where she led a team in the application of BS throughout research, from foundational ethnography, to quantitative testing, to strategic solutioning.
