My research spans many aspects of social psychology, with a strong emphasis on the application of social psychology to problems such as relative deprivation and prejudice, climate change, and water and energy conservation. This research is primarily concerned with understanding and engaging with processes of social and environmental change. Behind this lies a broader concern with developing a better theoretical understanding of sociality and the interplay between theory and practice, to allow for more potent and durable environmental, social, and behavioural change. My goal is to join analyses of ecosystems, social systems, and egosystems, to enhance social and environmental sustainability within and across those systems.
