Researcher biography

Since graduating in 1999 I have published over 200 papers, and in 2018 I was elected a Fellow of the Academy of Social Scientists in Australia. Supported by over 20 external grants, I am known for developing insights around three themes: (1) rejection of science and technology, (2) pro-environmental behaviour, and (3) intergroup relations. In each domain I have developed unique models designed to understand the logic behind supposedly “irrational” behaviour, and used them to facilitate attitude and behaviour change.
