Kenneth E. Wallen

Assistant Professor, University of Arkansas

Kenny Wallen is a conservation scientist and assistant professor whose work is framed around the idea that human behavior is the cause of many environmental and conservation issues but is also the means to solve those issues.

His work explores human behavior and behavior change in the context of the environment, conservation, and natural resources by focusing on: (a) norms, values, and institutions, (b) cognitive, social, and policy processes, and (c) individuals and groups.
