Lois graduated from her BSc in Psychology at the University of Bath with First Class Honours in 2020. Lois developed a keen interest in environmental psychology when she worked for Bath Council on their Clean Air Zone implementation project. Since then, Lois has worked with several other local councils (e.g., Cornwall and Bristol City Councils), conducting research to help them implement new transport policies and reduce car dependency. Broadly, Lois' research seeks to understand and remove the barriers to support of transport climate policies, using a variety of novel methodologies. Lois is also interested in facilitating a ‘just transition’ in climate action, by considering minority, vulnerable groups in environmental research. Lois is passionate about her work having real-life implications, for policies and the public.
Lois’s PhD seeks to understand the reasons why certain groups of people may or may not accept climate transport policies, specifically looking at Clean Air Zones and Liveable Neighbourhoods. Her work will adopt a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative, qualitative and machine-learning methods to determine which groups face barriers to acceptance, why, and finally – how acceptance can be facilitated amongst a diverse population.
