Teaching: Coordinator Economic and Consumer Psychology (Bachelor, year 3), supervisor Bachelor's and Master's theses.
Research interests: I am interested in personal and group factors driving individuals’ responses to global crises, in particular climate change.
One research line I am currently working on focuses on personal and (perceived) group values. What values do individuals report to strongly endorse, what values do individuals think others endorse, and how do such values influence individuals’ attitudes and behaviours? For this, I collaborate with various partners in the field, such as nature organizations (e.g., WWF, Alliance for Nature, Groninger Landschap), zoos (Dutch Association of Zoos) and schools.
Another line of research focuses on the interaction between individuals and technology, particularly within the energy domain. How can we better understand and consider the preferences and motivations of people within energy systems, how can we adjust technological innovations to user preferences and motivations, and can we give people a more active role within energy systems and the decision making about energy systems?

I am interested in the interplay between individuals and groups. I examine how groups (and group identities) are formed and changed, how they become shared identities, and how they affect both individual and collective behaviours and attitudes. I use various methods ranging from surveys in the field to longitudinal group experiments. I apply this expertise to the environmental domain to examine the role of group processes in realizing sustainable change, cooperating with other disciplines and practitioners. On a meta-level, I apply my expertise to understand and promote successful multi-and interdisciplinary collaborations.

|M.A.T. (Maddie) Judge, PhD||Postdoctoral researcher||My research interests focus on the psychology of social change and societal transitions. In particular, I am interested in investigating the role of morally-motivated deviance in changing social norms, lay beliefs about human-nature and human-artifact relations, the consequences of collective future thinking, and how misperceptions can act as a barrier to climate change mitigation.|
