Environmental Psychology research group

Environmental psychology explores the transactions between people – both individuals and groups – and their physical environment. It focuses on how environmental conditions influence people as well as on how individuals perceive and act on the environment.

As psychologists our focus is on people’s emotions, cognitions and behaviours, but as environmental psychologists we believe that these psychological processes are always situated, that is, they are invariably place-related and place-dependent.

Our research

Our research examines both how people act towards the physical environment, as well as how they may act differently in different environments, and how the environment affect them – their thoughts, moods and behaviour.
