My name is Kayla and I am an environmental social scientist.
This involves researching and communicating my findings on how humans build knowledge about the environment/nature through engagements in digital space (ex. the internet, apps, internet-connected tech, smart sensors). I study how this translates into action by way of personal behavior transformations or environmental policy shifts.
In addition to my research, I work on knowledge exchange projects with various research teams across the University of Oxford (see Knowledge Exchange). I also serve as an adviser to several local air quality monitoring projects and am involved with community groups aiming to improve air quality throughout Oxfordshire county & beyond.
I was born in New York and grew up in Lausanne, Switzerland. I currently reside in Oxford, UK.
