My research is focused on the social science of collective action on the climate crisis. What is the basis of denial, disavowal and delay? How does belief flow to action? What kinds of actions can people take on the climate crisis? What is the psychological basis of local collective action to push for leaving fossil fuels in the ground? How can local collective action be escalated? I am interested in applied research on these questions.
