I’m Roger Tyers, a Postgraduate Research Student within Social Sciences at the University of Southampton.

I studied as an undergraduate student of Politics at Leeds Metropolitan University, where following my studies I worked as a part-time lecturer in the School of Social Sciences for several years. During this time I also completed my Masters degree at the University of Leeds, in Democratic Studies. I then went to South Korea where I worked as a TEFL teacher at the University of Suwon before returning to begin my PhD programme here at Southampton on an ESRC scholarship.

I write a regular blog which you can find at Sociology Lens



Research interests

I study on the Energy, Environment and Resilience training pathway of the ESRC funded Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) at Southampton.

I’m looking at how insights from behavioural economics (so-called ‘nudges’) might be used for pro-environmental behaviour change. The particular behaviour I focus on is voluntary carbon offsetting for air travel, a potential method of mitigating the carbon emissions from commercial flying.

My supervisors are Dr Milena Buchs, Dr Nick Clarke, and Professor Gerry Stoker.
