I completed my PhD in Social Psychology (Minor in Quantitative Methods) at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. My dissertation work focused on further specifying existing and testing novel accounts of when and in what ways social cognitive intuitions come to be implicated in religious beliefs, and particularly beliefs about gods in diverse religious contexts. Since, I am pursuing research regarding whether ‘religion’ and supernatural beliefs can be harnessed to motivate pro-environmental behaviours; and in what ways different religious traditions do (or don’t) support caring for the natural world.
