My main research interests lie within the psychology and neuroscience of sustainability, altruism, and group processes.
Specifically, I’m interested in which processes enable humans to act sustainable or altruistic, and why they sometimes fail to act in accordance with their intentions (e.g. why they use their car even though they wanted to go by bike or public transport). In my research, I will use neuroscientific methods to investigate neural substrates of sustainable behaviour, but will also study social factors that influence sustainability.
