I have an academic background (MPhil, PhD) in Environmental and Social Psychology. My research interests are situated in the area that can be broadly defined as environmental and psychosocial factors of well-being and health.
I have done research in the areas of environmental sustainability, public health, inequalities, culture and crime. Interdisciplinarity, systems thinking and translation of research findings into policy and practice are common threads to my research work. In addition, I have interests in the growing area of Contemplative Social Sciences. My main methodological expertise is in qualitative research methods, although I also do mixed methods research and systematic reviews.
I am currently part of the research team of the ESRC-funded longitudinal project: The English Plastic Bag Charge and Behavioural Spillover: A Field Experiment, Diary Study and Secondary Data Analysis.
