Peter Clasen

Researcher, Google

Peter is currently a researcher at Google where he helps use the power of Google’s mapping and data infrastructure to advance policy and public awareness around climate change. In his previous role at Facebook, he helped launch the company’s work on public health. This included features that leverage Facebook’s strengths to promote behaviors that are essential to public health (e.g., health messaging, blood donations) as well as prioritizing Facebook’s efforts to take responsibility for behaviors on the platform that negatively impact public health (e.g., vaccine misinformation). Peter’s work cuts across product, partnerships, and policy. He is passionate about helping researchers maximize their influence as strategists and tacticians, using research roadmaps as an essential tool.
