Research topic: Pro-Environmental Attitudes and Social Tipping Points

I am interested in the effect of pro-environmental attitudes on governments, firms and other individuals, and modelling the progress towards social tipping points. Fake news, in-group identification, and social echo chambers all play a role in shaping social norms. This is an inter-disciplinary undertaking and I am looking for input from economics, psychology and other disciplines in producing and testing my models.


Very interested to hear about people and organisations working in similar or related areas.

Research supervisors: Paolo Zeppini, Bruce Morley
