My expertise / skills : behaviour change, public policy, environmental psychology, behavioural economics, commitment, participation, cooperation, intrinsic motivation, moral sentiments, values

In the design and selection of environmental conservation measures, the focus is often on finding a compromise between ecological gains and monetary costs. However, this view neglects an important determinant for the success of conservation strategies. Each step, selection, implementation and maintenance of conservation strategies are carried out by people whose judgements and decisions play a critical role in the outcome of every conservation strategy.
In my work, I link conservation questions to the behavioural sciences (behavioural economics, social and environmental psychology) and examine what are the behavioural motives of the relevant actors, which constraints do they face and how can a behavioural change be brought about which will favour and protect biodiversity.
