PhD topic: Sustainable food consumption
PhD supervisors: Dr Ganga Shreedhar and Dr Matteo Galizzi
Daniele is a PhD student interested in applying behavioural science and psychological methods to the study of sustainable food consumption. His research project aims to understand how to nudge individuals to modify dietary behaviours in favour of more plant-based choices; in particular, he wishes to investigate the power of social norms to support such transition.
The fight against global warming is at the core of his activities, both personal and academic. He defines himself a “climate activist” and uses a platform he developed (thehumansproject.org) to spread awareness about environmental issues and their possible solutions. He is also a member and contributor of the LSE Sustainable Futures Society.
He holds an MRes in Neuroeconomics from Maastricht University. In the past, he has worked as a research assistant at University College Dublin (IE), at the University of Oxford (UK) and at Università degli Studi di Trento (IT). In November, Daniele has supported the organisation of the “Workshop on Behaviour, Wellbeing and the Environment”, an event co-hosted by the LSE and UCD.
