Overview

With an interest in pro-environmental behaviour, my dissertation is focused on climate change in social media and potential links to ‘radical’ carbon footprint attenuating lifestyle adaptations. I am also interested in public perceptions of (i) climate change and of (ii) specific behaviours taken to minimize one’s carbon footprint.
