Dr Julie Goodhew
Research Fellow A
School of Psychology (Faculty of Health)
I am a Research Fellow in environmental psychology, with a background in education. Currently, I am working in the field of marine plastic litter and microplastics on a United Nations Environment Programme. With Professor Sabine Pahl, we are using an online survey to take stock of existing activities and actions (taken by government and non-government entities) towards the long-term elimination of discharges into the oceans, to reduce marine plastic litter and microplastics.
As part of the team on the EPSRC funded eviz project (Energy Visualisation for Carbon Reduction), we investigated whether demand for energy could be reduced when energy is made more visible, for users. If so, what were the key features of such visualisations.
I have taught on the PSY250 module (Workplace Learning and Skills Development) in the School of Psychology and having a background in education, I have taught on a variety of psychology related courses. I also have previous experience managing a team of staff in a busy Further Education college.
