Hayley Pearce


I obtained my master in communication management at the University of Ghent in 2017. In September I was given the opportunity to replace a teaching assistant. This job gave me the best of both worlds as it allowed me to teach and conduct research.  In January 2018, I started my PhD on how community based interventions can stimulate children’s pro-environmental concern and behaviour. I’m investigating this topic by means of experimental designs. Currently I’m evaluating the use of nudges to promote children to perform sustainable behaviour.

During my PhD studies, I will do research on community based interventions that increase children’s pro-environmental concern and behaviour. My project is funded by the FWO for the next four years.
