My research encompasses three threads, which sometimes intersect. Most importantly, I consider myself to be a conservation psychologist: interested in understanding and promoting a healthy relationship between humans and nature. Much of my recent work has been in zoos, where a wide and diverse range of people come to interact with wild animals. A second interest concerns identity – the ways in which people define themselves. I developed an Environmental Identity (EID) Scale to assess the degree to which the natural environment plays an important part in the way in which people think about themselves. Finally I also maintain a strong interest in the psychology of justice: how people define what is fair and how they respond to perceived injustice. Environmental challenges present an interesting and important context for examining perceptions of justice.
