I am associate professor in Sustainable Social Development at the University of Berne in Switzerland. I use lab and field experiments to examine the social and psychological mechanisms needed to tackle societal and environmental challenges related to public health, education, climate change, and land degradation. My research is in collaboration with UN agencies and local NGO’s in Sudan, Malawi, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, India, and Armenia.
I am affiliated with Nuffield College, University of Oxford; the Centre for Experimental Social Sciences, University of Oxford; the Center for Child Well-Being and Development, University of Zurich; the Centre for Development and Environment, University of Berne, and The New Institute, Hamburg.
I am also principal investigator of the Policy and Cultural Evolution Lab (PaceLab, https://pacelab.org/).
New project on sustainable land management: Agripath.
