Seeking to understand the conflict between global change and human cognition

I am a cognitive scientist at the University of Bristol. My research explores these major streams:

  • People’s responses to misinformation and propaganda, and how corrections affect our memory.
  • Why people reject well-established scientific facts, such as climate change or the effectiveness of vaccinations.
  • The potential conflict between human cognition and the physics of global climate change, which has led me into collaborative research in climate science and climate modeling. I hold an honorary position as a Visiting Scientist at the CSIRO Oceans, Atmosphere laboratory in Hobart, Tasmania.
