Senior Lecturer in Environmental Psychology, University of Exeter

I am an environmental psychologist with an interest in: a) Natural environments, human health and well-being; and b) Pro-environmental behaviour & well-being. Since 2011 I have co-ordinated the UK’s ‘Blue Gym’ project exploring the health &well-being benefits of marine environments. I am now Work Package/Project lead on 3 international programmes exploring these issues: ‘BlueHealth’ (H2020), ‘Blue Communities’ (GCRF) and ‘SOPHIE’ (Seas Oceans & Public Health In Europe, H2020).

Publications: I have 90+ publications in leading psychology (e.g. Psychological Science) and environmental science (e.g. Global Environmental Change) journals. Our NSF award winning graphic on pharmaceutical pollution was published in Science (2012), and my work on green space has been the focus of a Research Highlight (2014) and Outlook Article (2016) in the journal Nature.
