I'm an environmental psychologist currently studying for a PhD at Cardiff University. My research is investigating the environmental behaviour of visitors to the Brecon Beacons National Park and I'm also developing interventions to try and encourage more pro-environmental behaviours from visitors.
During my PhD I've developed a passion for science communication. Generally, this has been focused on making sure my own research is accessible and understandable. However I have recently started to develop an interest in other forms of media such as photography and videography and hope that during the last year of my PhD I can develop these skills further and pursue a career in science communication and behaviour change.
I volunteer with organsiations such as the Btritish Trust for Orntihology, sitting on their Youth Advisory Panel and the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust, where I'm working as a research assistant.
I am also able to work on paid research projects as a freelancer, with experience in thematic analysis and coding. I can also work on projects focused around behavioural interventions as well as a communications and public engagement. I'm also interested in working on creating content for organisations in the third sector that can help drive support for their causes or behaviour change.
