Clara Kübler is a PhD student at the University of East Anglia as part of the Critical Decade programme, funded by the Leverhulme Trust. Her research focuses on understanding how the publics’ climate change attitudes and behaviours are influenced by politicians.
Clara holds a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Environmental Psychology from the University of Groningen. Here, she worked as a research assistant for the department of Environmental Psychology and the law faculty. She was involved in projects centred around policy acceptance and behavioural change.
Following her degree, Clara gained industry experience working for a non-profit start-up in Berlin, focusing on creating a future-proof agrifood sector through open social innovation. Collaborating with a diverse set of stakeholders exposed her to the complexity of implementing climate action plans, teaching her valuable lessons to apply to her future academic research.
