Research Impact Officer

College of Social Sciences, University of Glasgow

November 2015 - Present


I am an environmental psychologist by training and as Research Impact Officer for the College of Social Sciences at Glasgow University I support the development and delivery of the College’s Knowledge-Exchange and Impact Strategy. I was the Impact Research Fellow for the RCUK funded dot.rural Digital Economy Hub at Aberdeen University for two and a bit years. Prior to that I worked in the Social, Economic and Geographic Sciences Group (SEGS) at The James Hutton Institute (2009-2013) and the Robert Gordon University where I did research, my PhD and Lecturing (2005-2009). My PhD focused on psychological perspective-taking and emotion in environmental evaluation and environmental preference. My BSc, from the Faculty of Psychology at UNAM (Mexico City, 2005), was a study about the disciplinary differences of tacit skills and tacit knowledge at UNAM. I am confident and proficient with a social constructivist approach to research, and with both quantitative and qualitative methodologies. My research interests include impact evaluation, monitoring and reporting; perspective-taking; well-being, and behaviour change and are linked by a profound interest in how people perceive, make sense and relate to each other and the world around them.
