Secondary Core Area
Brianne is interested in how individuals and groups think about climate change, how scientists can better communicate research on environmental issues to the general public, and how policymakers might use this information to create laws that affect how we interact with the environment. She is working with Amanda Carrico on a project on spillover in pro-environmental behavior (e.g. if someone engages in an environmentally-friendly behavior like recycling, is that action likely to act as a catalyst or a deterrent for their future environmental behavior?).
B.A., Indiana University
Brianne is a Masters student in the Sciences core. She pursued her undergraduate degree in Psychology from Indiana University, but quickly developed a passion for the environment in other courses. She decided to merge the two interests and study environmental social sciences.
