Very broadly I am interested in the art and science of behavioral change and the extent to which human behavior is influenced by our social and geographical environment(s).
applied statistical techniques. As part of my PhD, I am conducting a national study on climate change perceptions and behaviours in the United Kingdom. I am particularly interested in how different psychological constructs (e.g. experience, knowledge, emotions, risk perception) are (causally) interrelated and explain and predict important climate change mitigation intentions and behaviours.
Other research interests include a wide range of topics; from the evolution of altruism and cooperation to cognition and learning, the construction of human risk perception and the neurological basis of emotions and role in social behavior.
