Reader in Environmental Psychology

All human behaviour takes place in a physical environment. These environments have significant impact on the way people feel, think and act. At the same time people are constantly modifying their physical environment either consciously or not. My research studies these people-environment interactions. I am particularly interested in issues related to transport, environmental stress and restoration and sustainable living.
