Expertise
My main research line focus on the evolutionary psychology of sustainable behaviour. In particular, I study environmental behaviour and sustainability issues through evolutionary lenses, putting special emphasis in exploring (1) what kind of (evolved) psychological mechanisms might help to explain people’s (un)sustainable lifestyles, (2) how these mechanisms might contribute to creating and exacerbating environmental problems, and (3) how evolutionarily informed interventions could help to reverse these trends.

Also, recently I started to work as a postdoc on the project "Responsible decision-making on gas" where we study how individual factors (e.g., values, moral considerations) and institutional factors (such as public participation and stakeholders' framing of energy sources) influence public evaluations of gas.

My key research interests lie in public evaluations and acceptability of energy sources, systems and policies, and which factors influence these evaluations and acceptability judgements. I focus on theory development and applying theory in addressing acute environmental and energy problems.
